What we offer...
Stakeholder Focus Groups
Each stakeholder group has a different set of needs, desires, hopes, wishes, and dreams. In addition, every stakeholder group has a unique culture and background that you should spend time understanding and learning. This is the objective of facilitating stakeholder focus groups.
When we see, listen, feel, and respond to the needs and expectations of those we serve, we become better. This is why our stakeholder focus groups are so important. We take a funds of knowledge approach to engage students, teachers, staff, parents, and community members to ensure we are engaging the entire sphere of influence.
Stakeholder focus groups are a leaders opportunity to set the ground work for efficacy and co-collaboration.
Fathers, Father-Figures, & Men join D.A.D.S. on school campuses to create affirming and positive school environments for students. D.A.D.S (Dad's Achieving Daily for Students) is a volunteer parent program designed for schools and school districts to engage fathers and families of students.
Whether large scale or small, when D.A.D.S are involved, we see positive changes in the school, we see the family unit becomes more involved, and everyone wins! That’s the D.A.D.S. effect!
Family & Community Engagement Audits
Research has shown that effective family engagement produces better results for students, families, schools, and their communities.A research synthesis on family engagement by Henderson and Mapp (2002) found that students whose families were involved in their education, regardless of their income or background, were more likely to:
- regularly attend school
- earn higher grades and receive higher test scores
- pass their classes and move to the next grade
- have better social skills, including positive behavior at school
- graduate from high school and attend postsecondary education
Our Family and Community Engagement Audits provide a comprehensive look into institutions family engagement practices, highlighting problems of practice, areas for improvement, and strengths to grow and glow about. We provide a first person stakeholder reflection into the core principles of quality family and community engagement.
