Understanding the Dual Capacity Framework for Family-School Partnerships

The next MATSOL Family-School Partnership Special Interest Group (SIG) meeting will focus on the Dual Capacity-Building Framework for Family-School Partnerships.

At the meeting, guest speaker Dr. Bertha-Elena Rojas will introduce the framework. Participants will then have the opportunity to ask questions and meet in small break out groups to discuss the framework in the context of their own schools and districts.

The Dual Capacity-Building Framework for Family-School Partnerships should be seen as a compass, laying out the goals and conditions necessary to chart a path toward effective family engagement efforts that are linked to student achievement and school improvement. It was formulated using the research on effective family engagement and home–school partnership strategies and practices, adult learning and motivation, and leadership development.

Our guest speaker Dr. Bertha-Elena Rojas uses her extensive knowledge and experience in neuroscience, psychology, and education to develop comprehensive paradigms to support equity in education, cultural and linguistic competency and parent empowerment. She is involved in community impact work based on social innovation and investment in human capital. She is the Founder of Humanity Advanced, LLC, and the New England Representative of the California based Parent Institute for Quality Education (PIQE). https://www.humanityadvanced.com/
