High Impact Family And Community Engagement And Volunteerism
What is High Impact Family Engagement? All engagement efforts initiated by the school district will: be relational (positive relationships between the home and the school will be developed and maintained); build capacity of families and staff members (providing education, support, and opportunities for families to be engaged as skills, talents, motivation, and abilities are developed) and be linked to learning (all engagement activities will be deeply connected to the growth and development of students)
Each district family will partner with the Woodland Hills School District.
The Woodland Hills School District will implement family engagement initiatives and best practice strategies closely linked to student learning and student achievement by continuously building capacity for the development of positive relationships between each family and staff members.
