According to the National Family, School, and Community Engagement Working Group (Working Group), a leadership collaborative that informs the development and implementation of federal policy related to family, school, and community engagement, there is strong research evidence that “parental beliefs, attitudes, values, and childrearing practices, as well as home-school communication, are linked to student success.” The Parental Information and Resource Centers (PIRC) network funded by the Office of Innovation and Improvement at the U.S. Department of Education, supports creative strategies for engaging students, parents, and families throughout many states. Heather B. Weiss, from the National Family, School, and Community Engagement Working Group is working to "redefine what effective engagement is and to guide the development of the policies and practices that will achieve better learning results".
