This infographic outlines the goals, partnerships, strategies, outcomes, and participants of the Family Engagement Impact Project.
The Heising-Simons Foundation initiated the project to align early childhood programs, school districts, and community organizations in engaging families and teachers to support children’s learning. The project enhanced the capacity of communities, professionals, and parents to engage in children’s learning and improve educational outcomes for low-income immigrant children from birth through age 8. Funds were awarded to strengthen public-private partnerships, coordinate and integrate family engagement efforts across organizations, and leverage existing community resources.
The project had three phases: planning, implementation, and sustainability. Mathematica Policy Research evaluated the implementation phase.
