Our Center was founded in October 2018. Over the course of our first five years, our goals include:

  • Reaching over 3,000 Ohio families annually, developing high impact, research-informed family engagement training and tools.
  • Providing training in evidence-based family engagement practices to 48 school districts and 96 school teams.
  • Outreach to all 88 counties of Ohio. We are accomplishing this in part by collaborating with the Ohio Department of Education, OSU Extension, Ohio PTA, Ohio Family and Children First Councils and Ohio State faculty.
  • Leading a State Advisory Council to inform our work, with family, student, school, and organization representatives.
