Family Engagement

In order to achieve their full potential, students need support and encouragement from parents and family members. By participating in school events and teacher conferences, engaging in homework, and seeking out opportunities to help students grow, these individuals offer the right environment for kids to thrive. Educators also know how important family engagement is; when parents and guardians are partners in the educational journey, teachers are best positioned to help students achieve at high levels.

If we want all students to #GraduateReadyNJ and succeed in college, career, and community, we need our families on board.
