Family-School partnerships bring together school staff and parents/caregivers to identify challenges to family engagement and specific child health needs, then collaborate to develop, implement, and evaluate effective and equitable solutions. Awarded schools are expected to engage parents/caregivers in the planning, implementation, and evaluation of the grant-funded project, including seeking parent/caregiver input during the application process, providing opportunities for ongoing parent/caregiver feedback and involvement, sharing information with parents/caregivers about the status of the work, and ultimately creating a culture where proactive parent/caregiver engagement is the norm.
