Family and Community Involvement
This professional development offering, for currently practicing K – 12th grade teachers, examines the framework for 6 Types of Family/Community Involvement (Parenting, Communicating, Volunteering, Learning at Home, Decision-Making, and Collaborating) and how to utilize it in their practice. Attendees will learn how and why to involve family members (and guardians and caregivers) as partners with both school and home-based activities; strategies for 2-way communication with families to advance student learning; and, why and how to be responsive to families and their cultures and needs.
