Carolina Family Engagement Center

The mission of the Carolina Family Engagement Center is to help families from underserved populations become engaged and stay engaged in their local schools and the educational successes of their children.

The Carolina Family Engagement Center is focused primarily on aiding underserved students and their families (low income, English learners, those with disabilities, those in foster care, migrants, homeless, and marginalized communities).

Part of the South Carolina School Improvement Council at the University of South Carolina's College of Education, the center works to enhance student achievement, foster school improvement, and to build the capacity of all stakeholders to develop effective partnerships through stronger family engagement.

The Carolina Family Engagement Center will make its tools, trainings, and materials available to all stakeholders statewide through its website and other venues.
