HMH Family Engagement is designed especially for engaging English learner families, with the goal of improved academic achievement for EL students, PreK-12. The program reflects requirements and standards for effective, sustainable family engagement and school-family partnerships set by national and state frameworks, Title 1, and Title III, as well as research with families and schools. This comprehensive program supports development and implementation of a research- and standards-based family engagement action plan within districts and will scale easily to accommodate growing and changing ELL populations in schools. Components include professional development for educators, engaging Learn Together Workshops, Family Guides (English and Spanish), videos (English and Spanish), and HMH SchoolTalk app.
