Family & School Collaboration
At Meadowlark Elementary we strive in increasing and improving our involvement and engagement with our families and communities. We seek to support our students both in and outside of their school and classroom.
The Family and School Collaboration Department of our Salt Lake City School District helps build the capacity of our school staff to honor family's funds of knowledge, connect family engagement to student learning and create welcoming environments. We also create opportunities for parents/families to build their capacity to engage in multiple roles such as supporters, encourages, monitors, advocates, decision makers and collaborators -Mapp, K and Kuttner, P.
