14th Annual Community and Family Engagement Neighborhood Holiday Block Party

Partnership News & Events

The Arizona Department of Education School Health and Safety Unit would like to invite you to participate on Saturday, December 14, 2019.   Each year we partner with several community partners, non-profits, government and non-government agencies to provide a variety of educational, community resources and services for youth, families and the community. Last year we had over 600 participants.

When families, communities and schools work together, students are more successful and the entire community benefits. For schools and districts across the U.S., family engagement is becoming an integral part of education reform efforts.

 Family Engagement: Families and school staff work together to support and improve the learning, development, and health of students. Family engagement with schools is a shared responsibility of both school staff and families. School staff are committed to making families feel welcomed, engaging families in a variety of meaningful ways, and sustaining family engagement. Families are committed to actively supporting their child’s learning and development. This relationship between school staff and families cuts across and reinforces student health and learning in multiple settings—at home, in school, in out- of-school programs, and in the community. Family engagement should be continuous across a child’s life and requires an ongoing commitment as children mature into young adulthood.

P.S. If you are interesting in being apart of the planning team, we meet every Tuesday at 6p.m. on the greater progressive campus in the fellowship hall.
