The purpose of this page is to provide you with the most current resources available for Family and Community Engagement. Ohio’s Every Student Succeeds Act state plan, and Each Child, Our Future: Ohio’s Strategic Plan for Education both highlight partnership with families and stakeholders as a “core principle.” As Ohio implements their ESSA Plan and launches Each Child, Our Future, the Department and our partners must support birth to grade 12 education programs as they plan and implement effective family and community engagement practices.
Family and community engagement are key to improving outcomes for students. 21st CCLC is committed through our work and partnerships to provide grantees with resources that can help. We are pleased to be working with The Ohio State University Statewide Family Engagement Center hosting many wonderful and exciting resources for students and families. The Ohio Statewide Family Engagement Center at The Ohio State University is a leader in the field of family, school, and community engagement. The Center’s goal is to bring research to action by providing schools and families with the tools they need to work together so all children have success in learning and life.
