Center for Family, School, Community Engagement

Training Information (Scroll Down for Training Schedule)

The Center for Family, School, Community Engagement, part of the Child and Family Development Department located in the College of Education, is a state level technical assistance center for organizing school, family, and community partnerships to support increased student achievement. The Center provides regional trainings for (P-12) educators and parent leaders at schools across the state. The Center also provides a professional development certificate for parent coordinators, liaisons, and those who supervise them. 

All Trainings:

  • Meet Title I parental involvement requirements for districts and schools to provide training for staff and parents
  • Refocus/enhance existing family involvement programs with practical ways and resources to help families understand the Common Core State Standards and how to support their children’s achievement
  • Provide a research-based partnership approach, new strategies and best practices
  • Use the California Department of Education (CDE) Family Engagement Framework and the CDE Single Plan for Student Achievement template/resources for parental involvement

In addition to the trainings we have scheduled below, the Center also provides assistance to individual districts with planning, training and resources to implement successful family involvement programs at schools. We also offer a new Parent Leadership Professional Development Certificate for parent leaders to involve more families in school activities from preschool-high school and at those serving on district level committees. Download our Parent Leadership Professional Development Certificate Brochure.
