Goal 4 Establishment of Family Resource Room

Activity 1: A space will be identified within the site as the Family Resource Room.

This goal aligns with MN 124D. 231 Subd. 2, vii, A: mechanisms for meeting students' social, emotional, and physical health needs, which may include coordination of existing services as well as the development of new services based on student needs.

This also aligns with the Parent Involvement programming goal as listed on page 5 of the grant opportunity instructions.

Activity 2: The site coordinator, along with other staff, will work together to design and fill the space with resources and materials to support students and families.

The site coordinator, along with Gage administration will use multiple means to inform families of the existence of and accessibility to the Family Resource Room. The room will be accessible before, during and after school. The site coordinator will be responsible for staffing the Family Resource Room. The coordinator along with potential partners (e.g. bilingual interpreters, social workers, mental health practitioners, and/or community health workers) will create a schedule that allows families to access knowledgeable resources at all times throughout the day.

 

Outcome: Families will have a safe place to go within the school building. They will be able to utilize technology, speak with district staff and/or community partners, and access resources and materials that support their students’, and potentially their own, learning and development.

 

To measure our effectiveness, we will log attendance and usage of the room. This will give us data on who is using the space, when are they using it and what are they using it for.

Additionally, we will survey families regarding usage of the space (i.e. “Do you use the space?” “What do you use it for?” “What do you need to better use the space?”)
