Family and Community Engagement

“Raising the next generation is a shared responsibility. When families, communities and schools work together, students are more successful and the entire community benefits.”
-U.S. Department of Education


The Nebraska Department of Education identified family engagement as an essential area of focus in its new Accountability for a Quality Education System, Today and Tomorrow (AQuESTT) within the tenant of Student Success and Access.

Engaging families and communities as partners with schools is essential, as the evidence is clear: partnerships contribute to children and youth’s academic and social success. Current family and community engagement research, websites, and promising practices are available via the links below.
