2021-2026 Strategic Plan | Family Engagement

As we embark on our next strategic plan period, we do so with a renewed commitment to educational opportunity for all, and with a focus on what comes after high school graduation.

Family engagement is essential for student success and impacts student achievement. Research shows that when families are engaged with their child’s school and learning, they are:

  • More excited and positive about school and learning
  • More likely to enroll in higher-level programs
  • Have fewer discipline issues inside and outside of the classroom
  • Attend school more regularly
  • Earn higher grades and test scores
  • Graduate and enroll in a post-secondary program

Engaging Families Through Relationships

Developmental Relationships and Social Emotional Learning

At Communities In Schools of Central Texas, we will build partnerships with families because we know that:

  • All families have dreams for their children and want them to have the best opportunities possible
  •  All families have the capacity to support their child’s learning
  • Families and CIS staff are equal partners in supporting student success
  • It is the responsibility of Communities In Schools to build partnerships with families
