Community Engagement Initiative
Year 1 Evaluation Findings
The Community Engagement Initiative (CEI) was established to build communities’ and districts’ capacity to implement effective community engagement practices with a focus on improving student outcomes.
- CEI convenes cohorts of district teams consisting of district and school staff, families, community partners, and county office staff in a peer leading and learning network (PLLN) to identify, share, and learn effective practices to improve community engagement statewide. Network meetings are held throughout the year.
- CEI, as a System of Support lead agency, is facilitated in partnership by the California Collaborative for Educational Excellence and a consortium of three agencies selected for their expertise in community engagement.
