The Racine Unified School District Office of Family & Community Engagement is committed to raising student success through intentional and robust partnerships with families. The mission and vision is to foster practices and strategies to increase school-family-community connections.

Why does it matter? Research studies have pointed out consistent, convincing and validating evidence which shows that family engagement is one of the strongest predictors of overall student success. Efforts which are collaborative, linked to learning, and build respectful and trusting relationships are more likely to produce outcomes of children adapting well to school, attending regularly and earning better grades. This partnership maximizes shared responsibility between home and school to support student achievement and overall school improvement.

The RUSD Office of Family & Community Engagement has designed district approaches which build on the belief to work towards an equal partnership with parents and caregivers so that all students will graduate career and/or college ready.
