Joyce Epstein presents:
Effective and Equitable Partnerships: Engage Parents with Low Incomes in their Children’s Education
Studies show that it is a imperative to change from the “old way” of thinking about parental involvement to a “new way” of organizing school-based programs of school, family, and community partnerships. We will discuss key concepts, essential structures, and expected results of research-based programs of family and community engagement. We will discuss the importance of teamwork to organize goal-linked programs for student success, common challenges, and successful strategies that assist families with low income to support student learning and development. The session will prepare attendees to take leadership in their districts and schools to organize effective programs that welcome all parents as partners, including those with diverse socioeconomic and linguistic backgrounds.
