Family Engagement is an essential support for school improvement and student achievement. Research has found that when families are involved with their child’s school, the school out performs similar schools without family engagement. In addition, teacher morale improves, family members rate teachers more highly, and the school has a better relationship with the community (Byrk, 2010). Today we are going to be developing an understanding of research-based family engagement strategies.
