In this month's FINE Newsletter, we highlight the importance of strong leadership in the field of family, school, and community engagement (FSCE). This field has benefited from the scholarship and insights of a number of influential leaders over the past decades: Don Davies, Concha Delgado-Gaitan, Joyce Epstein, Anne Henderson, Kathy Hoover-Dempsey, Karen Mapp, Ollie Moles, Helen Raikes, Sam Redding, and Harvard Family Research Project’s Heather Weiss and M. Elena Lopez, to name a few. These experts have been committed to helping to bridge the research–policy–practice divide by translating FSCE scholarship into understandable and actionable resources and tools to guide families, schools, and communities toward a shared responsibility for student success.

In this issue, we look ahead to profile a number of emerging leaders in the field whose vision will help advance FSCE efforts in the years to come. We are excited to share these field builders’ thoughts on how FSCE can become systemic, integrated, and sustainable as we forge ahead with education reform initiatives that seek to effectively prepare students for college and career. In future issues of the FINE Newsletter, we will continue to highlight other leaders whose work promotes new ways of thinking about FSCE.
