Apply for a Family Engagement Funding Opportunity
The National Association for Family, School, and Community Engagement (NAFSCE) is seeking proposals from educator preparation programs and their school and community partners to take part in the Family Engagement Educator Preparation Innovation Project.
In 2019, NAFSCE brought together faculty within educator preparation programs and leaders from state agencies to form the Family Engagement Consortium on Educator Preparation. In partnership with parent leaders, schools, communities, and leading national organizations, including AACTE, the Consortium developed the Educator Preparation Framework for Family and Community Partnerships (Framework) to be released in Fall 2022. The Framework proposes new processes and ideas for preparing educators to develop the knowledge, skills, and dispositions to engage in equity-focused family and community engagement.
NAFSCE is looking to select up to seven collaboratives of educator preparation programs and partners that will implement select components of the Framework and participate in a community of practice. Each grantee will receive an award of up to $17,500 over 8 months.
