The U.S. Departments of Education and Health and Human Services are excited to release a new Policy Statement on the implementation of effective family engagement practices from the early years to the early grades. The purpose of this policy statement is to provide recommendations from the Departments on systematically engaging families in their children’s development, learning, and wellness, across early childhood and elementary education settings.

Please join leadership from the U.S. Departments of Education and Health and Human Services to learn more about the core components of the Policy Statement on Family Engagement.  We also invite you to join the process of shaping the next year of federal focus on family engagement by sharing your input on how the Departments can support State and programs in intentionally supporting family engagement.
