Recognizing that each family and school negotiate practices that are grounded in uniqueness, context, and experience, I no longer ask, “Are you engaged?” but instead explore the question of, “How are you engaged?”

Engaged family member, educator, researcher, I share anecdotes, experiences, and practices related to  family and school engagement, gathered over many years as a child, a sister, an aunt, a mother, a grandmother, an educator, and a researcher in the field of family engagement.

Each Note to School introduces the overriding theme, presents family voices often heard in the field, and opens a conversation about family-school engagement. Reflective questions, followed by evidence-based strategies, explore positive ways of engaging families and schools in meaningful and authentic partnership in various contexts.
