Family Engagement Tool


per 2-year subscription

A web-based process to create a stronger school community

Time Well-Spent

The Family Engagement Tool's two-year cycle provides a self-analysis and needs assessment process for a family engagement school team.  The completed needs assessment is used to create an Action Plan, leaving the balance of the two-year cycle to implement your plan and track your outcomes.


The FET is web based and includes our SCN Resource Library to aid implementation. Our tool and resources are soundly rooted in research and best practice and help schools move forward with meaningful family engagement.
