Family and Community Engagement

RMC believes that parents are their children’s first teacher. Because of this belief, RMC values meaningful partnership among families, communities, and schools to support student achievement. We work with states, school districts, and schools to build their capacity for engaging families and communities. We help our clients to understand the federal requirements on parental involvement, and to carry out strategies that engage families and community agencies in participating with schools.
