The U.S. Department of Education supports the Family Engagement Resource Providers (FERP) project to build state and local capacity to effectively engage families and strengthen collaboration between families, schools, and community partners in order to support the academic achievement of students participating in 21st CCLC programs. As a part of the project, FERP hosted several national webinars which connect family engagement research to practical implementation strategies.
The Department presents the following 12 Family Engagement Practices to Watch profiles developed as part of the United States Department of Education funded FERP contract with Manhattan Strategy Group. The profiles can be used as a technical assistance tool that bridges research to practice and provides real-life illustrations of programs operationalizing family engagement strategies. Each of the 12 profiles provides a brief description of the 21st CCLC program, details the family engagement strategies implemented including lessons learned and offers tips to readers to implement similar strategies.
