Family and Community Resources

Welcome

Family engagement is a shared responsibility between schools, families, and communities where all receive equitable access to tools and supports needed to successfully work together toward the development of children and youth for college, career, and lifelong learning.

Here you will find information for families, educators, and community members, organized by topic. It is also a source for those looking for ways to strengthen family, school, and community partnerships.

To receive updates on recently released family engagement tools, resources, articles, and upcoming events and webinars, you can subscribe to Nevada’s monthly Family Engagement Newsletter.

    Resource Spotlight: Nevada’s Family Engagement Framework

    Nevada’s Family Engagement Framework: Birth through Grade 12 (Framework) provides educators, schools, districts, and community members a shared approach and definition for family engagement. It can serve as a valuable resource in family engagement planning efforts. The Framework is based on research and evidence-based practices and strategies in family engagement. It also emphasizes the need for educators to build authentic relationships with families. The Framework is a living document and will be consistently updated to reflect the most up-to-date family engagement strategies, practices, and research.
