AZ Family Engagement Center

About the AZ Family Engagement Center

What is the AZ Family Engagement Center?
A collaborative effort among state and national partners to develop and implement a systematic, high impact infrastructure of family engagement that improves student academic achievement, empowers parents and increases the capacity of state agencies and organizations to provide high-quality family engagement supports for both parents and practitioners. This project will result in an improved continuum of evidence-based family engagement supports as well as twelve model demonstration “hubs” throughout the state that deliver evidence-based family literacy and engagement programming.

The three goals of the Arizona project are:

  • Improve academic achievement for disadvantaged students.
  • Empower parents of disadvantaged students with the information and tools to make good choices for their child’s education.
  • Increase the capacity of SEA, LEAs, and community-based organizations to provide high-quality family literacy and family engagement services.

This virtual Family Engagement Center for Arizona will provide information, tools and resources to increase the capacity of all community stakeholders.
