Parent and family involvement is a MUST to best support meaningful partnerships and positively influence children’s comprehensive growth and academic achievement in education. In the classroom, at home, and in the community, children are learning. Families and their child’s school community are best served when they work in concert. To ensure maximum achievement and positive learning outcomes of students, effective collaboration and innovative strategies must be employed to engage families with cultural/linguistic responsiveness at school.

Ohio Department of Education provides a toolkit that will be helpful to design and develop individualized strategies utilizing best practices for family engagement. For more information, follow the link below.

An education and counseling professional, I focus my expertise on diversity, inclusion and family engagement/empowerment Of particular importance is the partnerships between parents and the community schools that serve their children. Highlighting strategies, tips and evidence-based best practices for family engagement, my aim is to alter mindsets, broaden perspectives, foster empathy, and build capacity. Offering 'food for thought' and inviting discussion, I tell truths rarely explored-to both educators and families. A holistic culturally-responsive approach to teaching, learning and engaging others begins with respect. I promote respect and fully integrating curricular diversity in formal learning settings! Collaboration with families is necessary, because parents hold the master key that unlocks doors to child health and wellness, academic achievement, and believe it or not, teacher excellence and stronger school communities.

  1. Parent involvement is so critical! This is a great topic. Thanks for sharing. Helping parents understand that there involvement is needed and essential and helping schools engage parents in effective ways is a challenge for many schools. I have seen success when parents lead this effort and rally other parents. Schools also need to consider effective ways to engage parents outside of the normal school day. Or, figure out how to use the school as a hub to meet a specific community need that supports parent involvement. This topic is something that is Ann important part of my work. Thanks for posting.
