Family and Community Engagement

The State Education Department was awarded $2 million to create a new office that will develop statewide policy and offer school districts best practices for communicating with families and local communities.

SED will award $6 million in grants for school districts, community-based organizations, and other groups to improve family engagement efforts in local communities.

These efforts might include parent advocacy and/or creating outreach material in home languages so families can learn how to enhance school success for their children beginning at the earliest ages through high school and beyond.
