Why Is It Important?

FIchpt 1p3A wide body of research shows that when families are involved in their children's education, students are likely to be more engaged in school and have better attendance and graduation rates.

Family engagement in 21st CCLC programs strengthens the connections between the home and school, between the school and community, and between families and students. When your program invites student families to get involved, you send a strong message that everyone needs to be on board for students to be successful in school.
