Recorded on November 16, 2011, this was the ninth and final webinar in the "Achieving Excellence and Innovation in Family, School, and Community Engagement" (FSCE) series. This webinar examined the different roles of federal, state, and local entities in promoting FSCE policy; highlight innovative examples of systemic, integrated, and sustained FSCE in action at every level; and identify opportunities for practitioners, program staff, advocates, and education officials to weave FSCE policies into their own work.
Karen Mapp, Consultant to the U.S. Department of Education on Family Engagement, discussed the research base for her work at the Department in developing a policy framework for family engagement as it applies to Title I and other nationwide federal school improvement efforts. Kiersten Beigel, from the Office of Head Start, discussed how the new National Center on Parent, Family, and Community Engagement is reshaping how Head Start centers work toward family and child outcomes. Ruth Anne Landsverk and Betsy Prueter from Wisconsin's Department of Public Instruction (DPI) discussed how the DPI promotes family engagement in school districts across the state. And Karren Dunkley, from The School District of Philadelphia, talked about the district's efforts to accelerate achievement through family and community engagement.
