A Success Story

The San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools is a leader in a statewide, education-based partnership that includes the California Association for Bilingual Education, Los Angeles-based Families in Schools, and the California Collaborative for Educational Excellence. The goal of the partnership is to develop stronger family and community engagement in schools as a research-based strategy to accelerate student success. The partners were awarded a $13.2 million System of Support grant to build engagement capacity in school districts across the state. In the first year of the five-year grant, six pilot districts across the state are participating, including Ontario-Montclair School District in San Bernardino County. Participating districts will form Professional Learning Networks to disseminate the work statewide in subsequent years.
