Parent Panel
PARENT POWER (What Will You Do With Yours?)
Quibila A. Divine, PA
Ballroom C
Some parents know what it takes to effectively engage families in their children's education. This panel discussion is designed to provide you with the answers to get even the "hard to reach" parents into schools. Get your questions ready and come prepared to have the conversations we need to determine why some families are more engaged in their children's education than others.

Equitable Family, School, and Community Engagement for School Improvement

To increase academic achievement, inclusionary practices must engage families and communities. Family, school, and community engagement and partnerships are key levers for improving education outcomes for all students. In this session, participants will learn how to build classroom and school practices that are inclusive of families and their communities. Participants will gain knowledge and promising practices to successfully implement family, school, and community engagement.
