Department of Education Releases New Parent and Community Engagement Framework

The U.S. Department of Education (ED) has recently released the Dual Capacity-Building Framework for Family School Partnerships, which will support families, schools, districts and states in building capacity for student achievement and school improvement. The model framework can help schools to develop partnerships and increase family and community engagement.

The framework consists of four key components:
  1. The Challenge;
  2. Opportunity and Conditions;
  3. Policy and Program Goals; and
  4. Family and Partnership Outcomes

The Dual Capacity-Building Framework provides a guide for schools and districts to use to build the type of effective community engagement that will make schools the center of the communities.

For more information, watch Secretary of Education Arne Duncan announce the release of the framework.
