Cracking the Code for Improved Family Engagement

Mar 8, 2022

3:30pm – 4:30pm CT

Having a strong connection with families is paramount to building a student-centric school community. Yet often, families are overwhelmed by the variety of messaging channels and the volume of school messages – sometimes not even in their native language. During this lively session, participants will learn useful and easy-to-replicate tips for engaging families (even families who find schools inaccessible) across the various levels of their school community.
