Family Engagement: LEA to LEA Webinar Series 2015-2016
Thursday March 10, 2016 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
All families want the best for their children. In fact, “parents express a genuine and deep-seated desire to help their children succeed academically, regardless of differences in socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, and cultural background (Mapp, 2004).” Providing families with opportunities to become partners in their children’s learning takes commitment and planning from both educators and families. During these hour-long webinars, members of Local Educational Agencies (LEAs) throughout Pennsylvania, along with PaTTAN educational consultants, will share current practices and strategies for other LEAs to consider as a means to effectively engage families to support student learning. LEAs will share their rationale as well as the effects of their practices. This webinar series is designed for school administrators, teachers, and others interested in learning how Pennsylvania leaders are engaging families to effect student learning. Hear of their successes, creative ideas, challenges, and results.
