Parental Engagement: Beyond the Compliance Checklist

Thursday February 23, 2017
1:00 - 2:30 PM
Room 101

Work Smarter, Not Harder. Research show that children have better attendance, higher achievement and better social skills when their parents are involved in their education, yet schools continue to struggle to get parents engaged in activities and events at school. Flyers and lecture style presentations no longer draw families and communities to schools. Schools and districts must be innovative and creative in inviting individuals and in the style of presentation given. Participants in this session will learn how to effectively involve and engage parents and community members in the education of the communities’ young people. We will share ideas and strategies on what we have found to be successful ways to engage families in our community and will show video clips of successful events. We will also share how we involve our non-public and agency families in all our events. You will come away with ideas that can be implemented into your own schools and community immediately.
