Family Engagement Matters!

The Minnesota Statewide Family Engagement Center (MNSFEC) aims to increase students’ academic achievement by supporting families, educators and communities in regular education.  MNSFEC provides a variety of free services, such as workshops, webinars, professional development, and presentations. The Center works to increase family engagement for all families across the State, but has a particular focus on addressing the needs of families from low-income and diverse communities.

The Center’s multicultural staff (Hmong, Latino, Somali and African American) can answer questions from families about their child’s learning and school-related issues. Families, schools, educators and communities learn how to build stronger family-school partnerships and communicate more effectively with one another. Resources are available in three languages.

Resource and training topics for families, educators and communities include:

  • Improving home-school communication
  • Supporting students and families with culturally responsive teaching and learning strategies
  • Increasing academic achievement
  • Strengthening school readiness
  • Enhancing family literacy
  • Promoting and supporting parent leadership
