Community Engagement: Blending School and Family Practice for Student Support and Learning

Strive Together National Convening, Minneapolis, MN
October 2015

Presented by Laura Koenig, Director of School Readiness and
Khotan Shahbazi-Harmon, Director of Communications & Community Accountability

This workshop shares two parent engagement success stories designed to specifically address support for school readiness and increased attendance rates. Each example represents a different approach: converting school-based competencies and strategies into everyday language and habits for families to help prepare their children for school, and developing collateral that is useful and informative for parents and families to increase student attendance. Workshop participants will leave with lessons learned in what schools, businesses and families find useful for reinforcing teaching and learning in our educational institutions.
