Family and Community Engagement Spotlight: Roosevelt

We featured this FCEP spotlight in our May 2018 newsletter

Roosevelt Union Free School District's MBK Family and Community Engagement Program:
Parent Leadership Academy

At the Symposium, Roosevelt UFSD presented information about its Parent Leadership Academy. The focus of the program is to provide leadership development to encourage family engagement and partnership with parents and the community. It provides a two-way learning environment for the school district and the families to gain knowledge and support one another. The program  has provided an opportunity for an open dialogue between diverse individuals on key district topics, a network of neighborhood ambassadors, and an environment that fosters relationships between the district and families.
Parent Leadership session topics have included:

  • Empowerment
  • Advocacy
  • FCE Plan
  • Importance of Literacy
  • Restorative Justice
  • Culturally Relevant Practices
