Useful to Parent Centers, school systems, community partners, and families, all of whom play a role in successful stakeholder engagement in education.
This webinar series makes clear that effective family engagement is not a one-time program or the choice of a good school. Rather, it’s a set of day-to-day practices, attitudes, beliefs, and interactions that support learning at home, at school, afterschool, and during the summer. Titles in the series are:
1: Transforming Schools Through Family, School, and Community Engagement
2: A New Day: Family, School, and Community Engagement in Education Reform
