    Your next steps 

    1. Read through the Governance pages here. The CSC Resources page has a number of useful documents, organized by month, that we suggest reviewing.
    2. Decide whether you want to take the Compliance track (bare minimum to comply with the law) or the Committment track (leverage the benefits of these structures to improve your school). We, of course, recommend the Committment track and will be happy to support you in its implementation. The differences between the two are outlined on the Calendar page. If you prefer to use another family involvement structure for your school, such as a Parent-Teacher Leadership Team, you are welcome to do so, as long as it satisfies the minimum compliance requirements outlined on the CSC, MLE-PAC, and Title I Family Engagement pages.
    3. Each month, read through each of the toolkits on the CSC Resources page and use the materials provided to implement those steps. There is also a downloadable Training Toolkit with links to help resources to share with you CSC.
