This session will introduce participants to the Family Engagement Self-Assessment Tool (FE-SAT). The FE-SAT is an interactive, reflective tool that provides organizations the opportunity to identify strengths of their family engagement strategies as well as areas for improvement. The FE-SAT provides teams with research-based criteria to assess how well their activities align with practices thought to support the best outcomes for families and children. Participants are encouraged to attend the session in teams to begin work on their own local FE-SAT process.
At the end of this session the participant will be able to:
Intended audience: PFCE
- complete the Family Engagement Self-Assessment Tool with partners/staff in their community or organization.
- begin to identify strengths of the family engagement work and reflect on areas that may need additional attention.
