Family and Community Engagement Solutions equip K-12 leaders with tools to support collaboration and communication with, and accountability to, their communities. Hanover’s team of experts gauge family and community perception to uncover new ways to connect with families, identify potential partnerships, and curate feedback to inform decision-making.
We help you answer key questions and deliver strategies for success:
Are we effectively empowering families to engage with the school and support student success?
What organizations should we partner with in our community to promote student learning?
What are effective strategies for building and maintaining community partnerships?
What does the community think about a key issue or initiative?
One of our biggest goals for the year is to create an infrastructure that will have the capacity to focus on high-quality professional growth of staff. We decided to engage with Hanover because we needed an outside ‘eye’ to provide recommendations and best practices concerning our greatest needs. We anticipate the Professional Development Project having the biggest impact on our institution—if we can improve all of the adults in our division, then outcomes for students will improve, and that is what public education is about. Institutions do not have all of the answers, therefore seeing different perspectives is crucial.
