Family Engagement Collaborative

The APS Family Engagement Collaborative is composed of multiple departments and a representative from the New Mexico PTA. The Collaborative meets regularly, working together to design and implement programs and projects to help meet the district goals for family engagement.

FEC2APS Board of Education Goal #3, Family and Community Involvement is defined as “meaningfully engage families and enhance partnerships with community to maximize student achievement.”

The Collaborative moves towards this goal through:

  1. Sharing what each department is doing for family engagement;
  2. Determining ways to work more collaboratively on family engagement; and
  3. Determining how to move the “dial” for more positive family engagement in APS.
  4. Identifying how family engagement activities are linked to learning.

Strategic Planning

Purpose

  1. Every student matters.
  2. We believe that partnerships between community, family, and APS are critical for student success.

Priorities

  1. Strengthening relationships and capacity with families, schools, communities, and district administration
