Resource: Planning Tool for Youth Engagement

This tool (PDF, 22 pages) is designed to help state education agencies (SEAs), local education agencies (LEAs), and other educators work as a team to leverage relationships with young people and establish meaningful engagement. By using a continuous improvement process, teams at local, district, and state levels will collaboratively assess current youth engagement practices, identify gaps, determine improvement practices that align with the components of authentic engagement, and prioritize practices to implement. Teams will then create an actionable plan to monitor and adjust practices for continuous improvement with the goal of effectively engaging a diverse range of youth and their families to improve school engagement and attendance supports and outcomes.
