The Essential Partnership: Engaging Teachers as Partners
Parent engagement is critical to a child's success in school. But for many parents, no one's ever handed them an "engagement" manual. We don't always know how to have an effective parent conference, advocate for our children or simply make sure we're supporting our kids' education the best way possible.

How do we proceed if the school we're in doesn't seem to be the right fit? Parents attending this workshop will have the tools they need to engage their child's teacher and the school administration in critical conversations needed to move their child forward or to a better environment.
