Parents and Families

At the Partnership, we know that when families, community partners, and schools work together, students succeed and the entire community benefits. Our family and community engagement is grounded in a belief that family engagement efforts bring families, district staff, school leaders, teachers, and school staff together in support of a shared vision for student success.

Our Family Engagement Team at the Partnership works to empower families in Boyle Heights, South Los Angeles, and Watts through a variety of resources. We work collaboratively with partners to address a broad range of needs – unique to each school – experienced by students and their families in areas such as college readiness, academic support, leadership, health, and the arts.

Our goal is to strengthen families’ abilities to hold their children to high academic standards, create a college-going culture at home and advocate confidently for their students at school.
