Family Engagement Network

 

Family Engagement Network

Our vision is to create a professional learning community across public institutions and diverse communities of educators and families focused on systemic and equitable family, school, and community engagement practices and programs.

Mission: The Family Engagement Network (FEN) is made up of district, school, and community organizations across Alameda County and its 18 school districts, focused on creating family, school, and community partnerships. Through collaborative monthly meetings and professional development opportunities, the members learn, share, and expand on existing practices by focusing on authentic and meaningful family engagement strategies, systems, and structures. The Family Engagement Network utilizes over 50 years of research focused on family and community engagement, student achievement, social-emotional learning, race and equity, advocacy, and community transformation grounded in a strengths-based approach.
