Family Engagement in Education: Seven Principles of Success
Families have helped schools and students in schools across the nation in a number of ways. Family members help in classrooms, in the school office, and on field trips. They tutor students, act as mentors, and translate materials for other families. They raise funds for the school, help write grants, and organize activities to promote the school in the community. In the charter school arena, families have helped write charter applications and serve on charter school governing boards.
