Promoting Family Engagement and Student Success Through Invention Education

The Profound Impact of Effective Family Engagement

While the importance of family and community involvement in a child’s education is something that has been historically promoted and well-researched, declining public school enrollment and nationwide increases in chronic absenteeism have brought the topic into further national prominence.

This white paper explores how effective family engagement can help reverse these troubling trends, and how invention education is helping schools nationwide provide their students with accessible family engagement opportunities.

Highlights include:

  • The components of effective family engagement published by the National Association for Family, School and Community Engagement
  • An analysis of the many positive academic and health benefits students receive from family engagement
  • Research conducted by the Summit Education Imitative showing how participation in summer invention education programming decreased absenteeism the following academic year and provided opportunities for accessible family engagement
