When a relationship between a school, parents, and community is strong, everyone benefits. Schools and the communities they serve are full of diversity - languages, cultures, ethnicities, races, abilities, and income levels. Because of this, parent, family, and community involvement opportunities that promote engagement as well as each child’s learning and development must be multi-tiered and inclusive. Join this dynamic conversation to learn innovative outreach strategies to engage everyone, ensuring your school is welcoming and enjoyable to students and stakeholders.

Teach Social and Emotional Skills through (Not instead of!) Daily Academics

There are important social and emotional competencies students need to develop to be successful in school and beyond. Yet, too often in schools, these skills are demanded but not taught (“Cooperate in your group work today!”) or taught in isolation, separate from academic work (February is Empathy month!). Participants will learn to identify the social and emotional skills students need to be successful and develop a repertoire of practical strategies for teaching these skills as a part of the regular instructional day.
