Support Family Engagement With These Survey Questions and Resources
As schools and districts work to create positive learning environments, it’s crucial they encourage family engagement. Research shows when schools successfully engage families, students are more likely to succeed. Students with highly engaged parents and caregivers:
- Earn higher test scores
- Develop better social skills
- Are more likely to graduate
Additionally, families are showing increased interest in being involved in their children’s education program. By proactively engaging families by administering engagement surveys, reducing barriers to engagement, and encouraging frequent check-ins, schools and districts can ensure families are true partners in education.
