Family and Community Engagement

State Support Team Region 3 recognizes that family and community are the crux of a child’s well-being and school success. We offer direct support to district and community school leadership teams, as well as resources and information for families.

SST3 supports districts and community schools in Cuyahoga County to participate in family and community engagement work in various ways: 
  • Participating in the Ohio Statewide Family Engagement workgroup
  • Maintaining the Summer and Beyond Directory
  • Celebrating the Excellence in Education 
  • Maintaining the Parent Mentor directory for districts
SST3 also participates in research projects surrounding best practices for districts in engaging families specific to literacy outcomes as well as school improvement outcomes.
The Ohio Department of Education (ODE) also has a webpage - How to Support Your Child's Health and Well-Being during Ohio's Ordered School Closing - which families can use to support their child.
