What is the Boston Family Engagement Partnership?

Family Reunion

The Wheelock College Aspire Institute seeks to understand and advance family-school engagement across a diverse landscape of Boston schools. Currently, Aspire partners with eleven public, charter, and catholic schools for the Boston Family Engagement Partnership (BFEP).

How does the Boston Family Engagement Partnership achieve its mission?

Data Driven Planning and Action: Partnership schools use surveys and Participatory Action Research to collect a range of data from schools and families to guide the development and assess the efficacy of family engagement strategies.

Family Engagement Fellowship: Partner schools identify one representative to engage in a graduate level fellowship to train a 'next generation' of family engagement professionals and leaders in schools.

Learning modules for families: The Partnership use emerging online learning and smartphone technology as well as face-to-face workshops to develop learning modules that share key knowledge and strategies with families.
