Relative Impact of Family Engagement Strategies on Student Learning

a powerpoint slide, with low impact strategies on the left such as celebrations, fundraisers, potlucks, and performances. On the righthand side are higher impact strategies, such as goal-setting talks, personalized communication, positive phone calls home, modeling of learning support strategies, weekly data sharing folders, and home visits.

This visual representation from the Flamboyan Foundation of the impact of various family engagement strategies on student learning is helpful as we make the shift from reliance solely on traditional forms of family engagement in our schools (e.g., events at the school building, reactive communication, in-person conferences) to research-based effective practices. Use it to drive better planning conversations with your school teams. This graphic was developed based on a review of the research on family engagement.
