Welcome to Family and Community Engagement!

The Oklahoma State Department of Education is committed to strengthening and increasing family and community engagement to support student learning. The Office of Family and Community Engagement provides guidance, resources and support for families, schools, and communities as they work together to build meaningful partnerships that promote student success. We know these partnerships ultimately lead to significant gains in student achievement.

 

Announcements

June 1, 2020

The successful reopening of school buildings and planning for potential short-term disruptions to instruction will require a renewed effort by our school leaders to plan and support family and community engagement. New resources are now available to help you identify key opportunities for engaging families.

New Resources: 

Engaging Families in Reopening Our Schools  

Engaging Families to Support Distance Learning 

Our Core Beliefs

Henderson, Mapp, Johnson, and Davies identify four core beliefs that serve as the foundation for working with families to build authentic partnerships. Our goal is to provide resources and supports for families, for schools and for communities that embrace and demonstrate these foundational beliefs.

  • Core Belief 1
    All parents have dreams for their children and want the best for them.
  • Core Belief 2
    All parents have the capacity to support their children’s learning.
  • Core Belief 3
    Parents and school staff should be equal partners.
  • Core Belief 4
    The responsibility for building partnerships between school and home rests primarily with school staff, especially school leaders.
