Research continues to confirm conventional wisdom - engaging families is critically important for improving child outcomes. While many understand this, a key question lingers: How can we translate and sustain evidence-based practices in our work day-to-day? The FCE Network is designed to connect those working on various aspects of family and community engagement across the country – from schools and districts to community based organizations to parent leaders to state departments of education and the federal government –and is open to those interested in learning and sharing best practices.
The dates for the 2017 National FCE Conference are June 22-24 in San Francisco, CA. Check back regularly for registration updates.

The District Leaders Network on Family and Community Engagement began in 2009. Since then, with over 125 school districts, the Network continues to grow. A peer learning and action network, current members are responsible for coordinating their district’s efforts and are working together to move family and community engagement from ‘Nice to Necessary’. IEL supports the District Leaders’ Network through a host of gatherings and professional development opportunities including federal policy updates and local Learning Labs.
IEL's District Leaders Network on Family and Community Engagement convened a Learning Lab in Washington, D.C.
