Resources and Reads

From families to school districts to lawmakers, across the nation we are navigating how to operate virtually with students learning at home. With summer break upon us, ensuring students are ready for a strong start of school in the face of the unknown is critical. During these unprecedented times, educators and families must be true allies in education to ensure all students succeed and all families feel supported. At Flamboyan we believe that practicing REAL Family Engagement has never been more important. Read on for a curated list of trusted Resources and Reads for ideas, guidance, and tools to support meaningful family engagement now and moving forward.
