Family engagement is the number one driver of student success, but it is often difficult to set goals and measure results around activities that happen in the classroom. We were excited to come across a free rubric by the Flamboyan Foundation. The rubric lays out three critical criteria for classroom teachers:
1. The teacher possesses the beliefs and mindsets to effectively engage families.
2. Teachers and families have trusting relationships
3. Teachers engage families in supporting learning by effectively communicating academic information and progress
Many of the examples in the rubric center on cadence and clarity of sharing, relevance of information, and scheduling. Technology can help standardize and simplify this for your team. Using a central, secure place to share the right information at the right time with the right people can have a profound impact on your family engagement success. Livingtree’s school communication platform was built to do this from any device in 100+ languages.
