Family and Community Engagement: The Key to Student Success

Friday February 9, 2018
3:30 - 4:30 PM
Room 115

By promoting an environment supportive of literacy and a culture of learning in schools, families and communities can work together to improve student achievement - in the classroom and, ultimately, in life. In order to accomplish this, families must be motivated to participate, and communities must have local ownership and a direct connection to schools and other education systems. Participants in this session will learn strategies on how to effectively involve families and communities to serve the best interests of our nation’s most precious resource - our children. In addition, Garrett covers the five essential components that comprise family engagement: early literacy, family involvement, access to books, expanded learning, and mentoring partnerships.
