Hi there,

Does anyone have any resources or conferences they recommend for building family engagement and student attendance?

I work in a nonprofit organization with homeless children 6weeks to 5years and their families, and we have been working hard to get our families more engaged in their child's learning and committed to regular attendance.

Attendance - Parent Handouts - Attendance Works
Also see attached documents (some are from that website).

Family engagement -
Parent, Family, and Community Engagement Framework | ECLKC
Family Engagement | ECLKC
Simulation tool: Parent, Family, and Community Engagement Simulation: Boosting School Readiness through Effective Family Engagement Series | ECLKC
My program uses this form for goal-setting with families during the school year (you may have to open it in Internet Explorer)

Hopefully some of this is helpful! I can give more concrete details if you would like, but I have found these to be a good start for my own work doing family engagement and family support :)
