We know that parents are the experts on their children. Yet, school district leaders know that effectively and equitably engaging families is far from simple.
When families are engaged in school, their children are more likely to succeed. At a more holistic level, many studies support the importance of partnerships among families, schools, and the broader community. Educators and administrators also play a role in making family-school partnerships work.
When schools elevate families as true partners in their child’s education, their students benefit significantly.

Panorama is an educational support tool that understands how data plays a powerful role in improving school climate and culture, teaching and learning, family and community engagement, and students’ social-emotional learning.
