Dual Capacity-Building Framework

Based on existing research and best practices, the Dual Capacity-Building Framework (DCBF) for Family-School Partnerships (Version 2) is designed to support the development of family engagement strategies, policies, and programs. CEI uses the DCBF as a model to establish shared language around the improvement of relationships. Educational partners often use the word “Capacity” to describe a person or organization’s ability to accomplish a desired result. The DCBF expands on the definition of “Capacity” so that interest holders can more effectively target their improvement strategies and goals.
