2022 Family-School Partnerships Challenge Grant

National PTA’s Center for Family Engagement was established to take a deliberate and focused approach to reimagining family engagement practices and policies for greater equity and effectiveness, and to apply transformative family engagement approaches at scale. As part of this work, the Center for Family Engagement is leading an update to the National Standards for Family-School Partnerships. The Center for Family Engagement will support up to 10 PTAs (state, district-council-region, or special interest*) to deepen their learning and leadership in the National Standards for Family-School Partnerships through this $2,500 grant.
