The Nevada Department of Education has partnered with the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO), the National Association for Family, School, and Community Engagement (NAFSCE), the Mid-Atlantic Equity Consortium, Inc. (MAEC), the Campaign for Grade Level Reading (GLR), and 12 other states to form a State Consortium on Family Engagement. One of the goals of the State Consortium will be for each state to develop its own family engagement framework for birth through grade 12.
The Nevada Family Engagement Framework will:
- Provide schools and districts a shared approach and definition for family engagement
- Be informed by Nevada parents, families, educators, and community members
- Be based on research and evidence-based practices and strategies in family engagement
- Emphasize the need for educators to build authentic relationships with parents and families
