School-Community Engagement

Schools are always looking for new, innovative ways to engage their families. It is vital to get community and family involvement in decision making processes, and to make sure that parents/community members feel that their voice is being heard. 

Working with a grant from the Nellie Mae Education Foundation and a steering group consisting of Lowell Public School representatives, community members, teachers, and volunteers, we are working to make engagement a priority and enhance the work already being done in the schools. We are finding meaningful opportunities for families, community members and the schools to work together to provide a better education and more opportunities for students.
