In June, the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education released Strengthening Partnerships: A Framework for Prenatal through Young Adulthood Family Engagement in Massachusetts. Now, a companion document has been released to assist schools and districts in measuring their capacity and success at promoting a culture of equity-driven family engagement. The Family, School, and Community Partnership Fundamentals aim to support high expectations for family, school, and community partnerships with the goal that coordinated, comprehensive, and systemic supports create opportunities for all students to achieve academic proficiency and beyond.
