NEW! Family Engagement Framework

The Oklahoma Family Engagement Framework serves as a call to action, a vision for family engagement in our state. It brings research and local experience together to provide an essential support structure and an organizing tool to build upon. This framework invites families, schools, and communities to partner to support student learning. 

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 

Pathways to Engage Families and Communities

Family and Community Engagement is a shared responsibility among families, schools, and communities to build relationships that support a child’s learning and growth from birth through college and career. These four pathways will help establish strong family, school, and community partnerships.
