“John Glenn did not launch into space on his own. He was part of a team of astronauts, engineers, mathematicians, and physicists. Just like a space launch, families, schools and communities need to work together consistently for children’s learning to take off. We want to be fuel for these partnerships from preschool through graduation so that, in the end, teachers, students, and their families will all benefit”, says Dr. Barbara Boone, Director of the Ohio Statewide Family Engagement Center.

The Center’s interactive website will be updated on a regular basis with new assets, examples from families and schools of family engagement practices, webinars, research reports, and other resources. This site will be a valuable tool for all Ohioans who are committed to working together for the success of each and every child.
