    Family engagement is a critical component to student success.  The Buffalo Public Schools utilize the Dual Capacity-Building Framework for Family-School Partnerships developed by Dr. Karen Mapp.  This family engagement framework provides opportunities for inter-departmental collaboration to build trust; ensuring families and community members are co-creators during school-based and District-level planning.
