Family and School Collaboration
The Family and School Collaboration Department helps build the capacity of our school staff to honor family's funds of knowledge, connect family engagement to student learning and create welcoming environments. We also create opportunities for parents/families to build their capacity to engage in multiple roles such as supporters, encourages, monitors, advocates, decision makers and collaborators.
