Family Engagement Framework: A Resource for School Administrators

The Family Engagement Framework outlines six key elements of family engagement derived from the Texas Education Agency’s Review and Support Self-Assessment Tool and the Effective Schools Framework. For each of the six elements, activities and resources are presented that serve as points of reference for school administrators when school teams plan, implement, and evaluate family engagement practices that directly impact outcomes for students with disabilities. This Family Engagement Framework includes each of the following elements: 

  1. Partnerships with Families
  2. School Climate
  3. Build Capacity (Professional Development)
  4. Enhanced Communication
  5. Community Connections
  6. Implementation.
