Parent and Family Engagement

The Vacaville Board of Education recognizes that parent and family engagement is essential to educate our District’s students to prepare them for academic achievement and life-long learning. Schools, families, and the community must all be actively involved in developing strong programs and policies that support the academic success of every student in Vacaville Unified School District (VUSD). The purpose of this family engagement plan is to support and promote a partnership between home and school.

 

Definition 

Parental and family engagement shall be defined as an ongoing process that assists parents/families to participate in regular, two-way, meaningful communication involving student academic learning and other school activities, including assurance of the following: 

1. That parents/families play an integral role in assisting their child’s learning. 

2. That parents/families are encouraged to be actively involved in their child’s education at school. 

3. That parents/families are full partners in their child’s education and are included, as appropriate, in decision-making and on advisory committees to assist in the education of their child. 

4. The carrying out of other required activities, such as those described in section 1116 of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).
