Family engagement is a critical component in shaping students’ academic success. When families are actively involved in their child’s education, students tend to have higher academic achievement, better attendance, and a more positive attitude towards school. That’s why we focus our work at ParentPowered on engaging all families and breaking down any cultural or linguistic barriers that could stand in the way. We want to support you in doing this essential work. With this in mind, we’ve compiled articles and resources to harness the power of family engagement to drive student success.
Don’t miss this lively training on using parent feedback to drive student success. You’ll hear experts share best practices for gathering and analyzing feedback while minimizing bias. Discover how to create a feedback loop that fosters a culture of positive and sustainable change. You can also earn CE credits for attending!
