Welcome to the OCDE Family Involvement Network homepage. Our mission is to support Orange County students and their families by creating a forum for school, district, and community representatives to come together and share best practices in family engagement.

The Family Involvement Network (FIN) meets quarterly to address the question: "What does it look like to engage parents and families in meaningful ways to support student success?" We share research, strategies, and successful practices for building the capacity of school staff to work in partnership with parents and families. We also discuss LCAP requirements for parent involvement, as well as practical ways to implement those requirements. Members have an opportunity to network with counterparts, share resources, and discuss their parent involvement needs.​
