A Review of Seven Parent Engagement Initiatives: The Annie E. Casey Foundation

The Annie E. Casey Foundation commissioned RFA to produce the booklet Strong Images and Practical Ideas: A Guide to Parent Engagement in School Reform. This guide reviews seven different but complementary programs, supported by the Casey Foundation over the past decade, that advance parent engagement in education. The guide provides a description of each group’s activities and an overview of the technical support the group can provide for community organizations interested in moving into school-related work. The Casey Foundation developed the guide as a service for community organizing groups in cities where it is active.
