Family Involvement: Research and Strategies for Access and Success Programs
Wednesday, June 6
3:00 PM to 4:00 PM Eastern
We all know the value of engaging parents and families in the education of their children – especially around postsecondary selection, admissions and financial aid processes. However, family engagement at the secondary school level can be a challenge. Students often feel that they no longer need their parents’ help, educators and college access and success professionals don’t have effective engagement strategies, and on top of that, families often feel uncomfortable and unwelcome at school. This webinar provides a foundation for parent engagement research, effective engagement strategies, tools for increasing effective communication and parent participation, and an understanding of the link between education and home – especially at this critical time when students are considering their postsecondary options.
This webinar is presented by Carolina Hernandez-Malone of Families in Schools, a California-based organization that specializes in training organizations to effectively engage families. Ms. Hernandez-Malone will also share information on a free training opportunity, Transitions to College. This two-day training is aimed supporting parents/families of low-income and immigrant high school students through the transition from high school to college. Click here to learn more!
