Input Sought on Proposed Family & Community Engagement Plan

The public has until 5 p.m. Monday, Sept. 9, to submit comments on the plan for engaging communities and families as a critical component to increasing student achievement.

Please send comments to policy.analyst@ aps.edu by 5 p.m. Monday, Sept. 9.

APS has created a plan, called an administrative procedural directive, that formalizes the significance of community and family engagement. The plan outlines steps for actively building partnerships with families and the community by:

  • Fostering safe and welcoming environments
  • Strengthening relationships and capacity with families, teachers, school and district administrators and community partners
  • Expanding communication between families, community partners and schools
  • Cultivating equitable and effective systems.

APS recognizes the important role families and community play in the improvement of schools and the well-being of students. Engaging communities and families is a critical component to reach the district goal of dramatically increased student achievement. APS affirms also that the involvement of family and community partners is critical to the overall success to our students and is essential to maintain the results of long-term, sustainable reforms in future years.
