Family Engagement

Welcome to the Eli Whitney Technical High School Family Community Partnership Program. Across our district, families, schools and communities are partnering to ensure student achievement.

This partnership can improve school programs and school climate, provide support for families, increase parents’ skills and leadership as well as connect families in the school with others in the community. With frequent interactions and communication between schools, families and communities, our students will hear the same message of the importance of school, hard work and contributing to the community. Our system encourages families to partner with the school through the Family Engagement Action Team. Participation does not require a parent or family member to be a member of the Parent/Faculty Organization.
