Parent and Family Engagement

  • Parent and Family Engagement has always been a centerpiece of Title I, Part A. With the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), it now has a specific statutory definition. The statute defines parent and family engagement as the participation of parents and families in regular, two-way, and meaningful communication involving student academic learning and other school activities, ensuring that parents and families play an integral role in assisting their child's learning; that parents and families are encouraged to be actively involved in their child's education at school; that parents and families are full partners in their child's education and are included, as appropriate, in decision making and on advisory committees to assist in the education of their child; and that other activities are carried out that will build the capacity of all parents and families.
