What Partners Are Saying About ParentPowered

I think ParentPowered is the best approach to family and community engagement I have seen. I have worked at the state and federal level as well as in districts, and family engagement is very difficult to achieve in districts with high poverty, high at-risk populations or just in areas where people are very busy and not as able to go to the school for events.

ParentPowered gives everyone concrete strategies to help their children with both specific academic skills and social emotional skills. It also gives parents important developmental information about their children as well as encouragement for the tough job of parenting. It's actually one of the only things I have purchased, in my 35 years of work in education, that every time I get something, I say to myself "that is so good; I am so glad we use this!" I love what you are doing!
