Commissioner's Roundtable for Family and Community Engagement in Education
The purpose of the Commissioner's Roundtable for Family and Community Engagement in Education (Commissioner's Roundtable) is to advise the Commissioner of Education regarding policy and programmatic priorities to improve outcomes for all students and advance the State Board of Education's comprehensive plan for equity and excellence in Connecticut schools.
The Commissioner's Roundtable will:
- advise the Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE) on issues and policies related to family and community engagement in education;
- bring an authentic parent and community voice to CSDE products and initiatives;
- review and make recommendations on the Connecticut State Board of Education's Five-year (2016-21) Comprehensive Plan regarding school-family-community partnership initiatives; and
- review and recommend effective practices to increase school and district capacity to develop successful partnerships and families' capacity to support their children's education and determine the feasibility of carrying out those practices in Connecticut.
Meeting Dates for 2017-18 (locations to be determined)
- October 5, 2017
- January 24, 2018

Membership on the Commissioner's Roundtable is intended to reflect a balanced representation of the three major constituencies -- school/district staff, parents (or guardians) and community members as well as students. Appointments to the group are made upon recommendation by the Commissioner of Education and the extent possible, reflect Connecticut's geographic, economic, ethnic and racial diversity.
