The Family & Educator Partnership (formerly the Family & Educator Connection/ Parent & Educator Connection) is redesigning the focus and work of the program to emphasize a systemic approach to develop and sustain effective partnerships between families, educators, and community providers to promote success for all children and youth with disabilities. Through a multi-tiered system of supports (MTSS), the FEP will provide resources and services to encourage partnerships and collaboration between families, AEA, and school personnel.

Here you will find information about the FEP program, instruction/tips on how to best use these resources, and a list of materials.
