A Quality Public School System
All families deserve access to an effective and quality public education system as the key to a vibrant economy and democratic society.
For more than 20 years, Families In Schools has provided capacity building to education staff, empowered families to support their children's education, and has advocated for policies and practices that promote authentic family engagement. When schools engage families, families get involved, and student achievement increases. Students are more likely to succeed when schools, families, and communities work together in partnership to maximize and support student learning.
The mission of Families In Schools is to involve parents and communities in their children’s education to achieve lifelong success.
Families In Schools envisions a public education system where students have all the opportunities and resources necessary to succeed in school and in life. We seek a workforce prepared for lifelong learning, and active engagement in the civic life of our society.
