Colleen Vesely

This topic focuses on strengths-based family engagement for equity in education. First, the six principles of family engagement and their connection with equitable outcomes will be discussed. Second, how family engagement can be considered at individual levels of accountability and responsibility (i.e., individual teachers, individual schools), as well as at systems-level (i.e., school systems, local government, etc.). Third, strategies and examples for transforming individual- and systems-level family engagement will be offered.
