This checklist compiles all of the strategies in CLI’s family engagement program. The checklist can be used to self-assess where you are in your family engagement efforts and to set goals for practicing new strategies. There are associated online professional learning sessions coming soon!
Administrators can get started planning with this high-level overview of how CLI’s Family Engagement Resources found in links below can be folded into a district-level family engagement plan. The strategies presented here are not meant to be all-inclusive, but rather represent research-driven ways to engage families in supporting children’s development using resources that are freely available to school districts and families.
Sending home family engagement bags are often folded into district-level family engagement plans. To support schools in this effort, CLI created a pre-K/K family engagement bag based on activities from the CIRCLE Activity Collection: Family. These activities provide fun, playful learning experiences for families while supporting what children are learning in school. Review and download the resources to create your own family engagement bags.
