Joliet Public Schools District 86 is committed to transitioning from family involvement to family engagement. Joliet Public Schools District 86 utilizes the Illinois State Board of Education Framework for Parental Engagement.

Why:  Family Engagement activities are designed to help provide partnerships that encourages families to be actively engaged.  The Illinois State Board of Education Framework recommends the following four research-based principles to encourage more systemic, sustained, and integrated engagement:

  1. Develop systems that support family engagement.
  2. Build welcoming and supportive environments.
  3. Enhance communication with parents.
  4. Include parents in decision making.

Welcome to District 86 Family Engagement, we make the Home and School  Connection!

Last year we provided three family engagement (hands-on) sessions focusing on Fundations, retelling activities, and strategies that were taught throughout the school day.  The family engagement sessions were offered to parents at Keith and Marshall Elementary Schools.  We look forward to extending family engagement sessions.
