Family Engagement

VISION

Parents, families, schools, and our community play a crucial role as partners in the education of every child. The Family Engagement Framework articulates our responsibility to create a sustained, strategic path forward to ensure we are serving and supporting every family who chooses YES Prep Public Schools for the education of their child. It is our deepest desire to build the capacity of families and educators to work in trusting partnership.

GOAL 

Through shared responsibility and a fierce commitment among YES Prep staff, families and the community, all YES Prep Public Schools will become true Partnership Schools* to promote, encourage and support the success of every child entrusted to our care.

  • All families can support their child’s learning 
  • Trusting relationships are vital and must be developed through meaningful two-way communication
  • All aspects of the campus must be a welcoming environment
  • Engagement efforts should support current, future and former YES Prep Public Schools families
