High Expectations supports schools to establish and build the capacity of a family engagement team to assess present family engagement practices, implement engagement activities, evaluate next steps, and continue to improve and coordinate practices for all types of family engagement. We work alongside these teams to develop and implement family engagement practices that lead to increased student achievement, stronger home-school relationships, and improved climate and culture.
School teams of administrators, teachers, families and key staff begin by attending our 2-day Family Engagement Learning Institute. Here, teams learn effective family engagement strategies and work together to develop a school-wide family engagement action plan. After the Institute, we provide ongoing coaching and support to school teams to ensure the successful implementation of their family engagement plans.
