Please find a sampling of links on this portal page to information and resources on the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education's (DESE) website about topics that may be of interest to families, and to those supporting family engagement in education.
The goal of Family engagement in education is to build genuine relationships over time between students, families, educators, and the community. Positive relationships and shared responsibility supports family well-being, and children's healthy development from the earliest ages into young adulthood.
- Effective family engagement is culturally responsive, collaborative, equitable, and respectful of diverse languages, norms, and values.
- Effective family engagement tries to eliminate barriers to participation and take place in schools, in the community, and wherever students live and learn.
