Family engagement increases student achievement but how do schools connect with families who don’t participate yet? Educators can easily become frustrated trying to reach the disconnected and often fall back to engaging the already engaged. How can you involve the entire school community in a positive way?
Dr. Steve Constantino, known for his experience and sound teaching on family engagement, believes you can and promises far more than easy answers and theory to make it so. This book shows you how to bring real shifts to your culture through steps, reflections, and diligent effort. Simple logic models and best practice case studies will reveal, how and where family engagement breaks down, and how to create a truly inviting culture for successful community and family partnerships.
