Promising Practices


Overview

The Office of Parental Involvement and Family Engagement (PIFE), District PIFE Liaisons, and the Advisory Council for Family Engagement are excited to publish the first annual collection of Family Engagement Promising Practices. The PIFE Office sought responses from schools, districts, and community organizations with the intention of highlighting promising practices in the area of family engagement that are occurring throughout the state of Nevada.

This publication is organized to show how each promising practice aligns with the National PTA Standards for Family-School Partnerships, adopted by the Nevada State Board of Education in 2015 as a part of Nevada’s Policy on Parental Involvement and Family Engagement. Please note, that a promising practice may meet more than one standard.

The application window for schools, districts, and community organizations to submit their family engagement promising practices from the 2018-2019 school year will open in February 2020.
A review team consisting of family engagement practitioners will review the submitted applications and select promising practices for publication based on their alignment to the following:

  • Nevada's Policy on Parental Involvement and Family Engagement
  • National PTA's Standards for Family-School Partnerships
