It has partnered with Flamboyan since 2011, when it first co-funded with Flamboyan the launch of a school-wide model for family engagement in a select group of D.C. public schools — since then, this model has spread to 27 elementary schools in D.C. Currently, the Polinger Foundation supports Flamboyan’s Family Engagement Partnership in Early Childhood initiative focused on improving outcomes for children ages 3-5 and their families in DCPS and D.C. public charter schools.
