Family-Engagement.gifFamily Engagement

Fidelity of family engagement means that families have received a comprehensive overview of the MTSS Framework and understand your school’s vision and mission. Families are empowered by school teams to become meaningfully engaged in the MTSS process and receive oral and written communication relative to their child’s progress. Families are informed and understand their right to request a special education evaluation at any time, regardless of the school’s MTSS adoption and/or implementation status. Interested families have also received training and support to implement evidence-based practices at home that will empower them to help facilitate their child’s progress.
