Case Study: EdNavigator

This case study from the Brookings Institute’s Playbook for Family-School Engagement describes how EdNavigator, a nonprofit agency based in New Orleans, uses creative strategies to connect families and schools.

Strategies include developing “congratulations packets” to build trust between families and schools and using navigators to help parents make decisions for their students.
