Empowering Partnerships with Parents

Audience: Faculty and Administrators, middle and high school

What if every communication with parents—school presentations, websites, report cards, conferences, and emails—could become an opportunity to empower students to make school meaningful? In this webinar, learn tools and strategies for: framing any school-to-home communication in terms of how the teacher and parents can work together to help the student make school personally meaningful; coaching parents on how to help their children notice what is and isn’t working at school; turning family conferences into a collaborative process that empowers students; and responding when parents are stuck in their own agendas.
