Hello SLE Leads,
We enjoyed our time with all of you in New Orleans , where we began our conversation about the importance of Family Engagement. I am please to share a free webinar hosted by the Global Family Research Project that is very relevant to continuing this conversation.Join a free Education Week webinar on April 25th at 2pm EST and be part of the conversation about promising family engagement innovations. “Helping Children Succeed Through Family Engagement,” builds from a recent paper for the Carnegie Corporation of New York and features three powerful examples of the high-leverage areas in which investments in family engagement can be a key driver in children’s school success and for achieving educational equity. The link to register for the webinar is below.Following an overview from GFRP’s Heather Weiss, the presenters will describe how they engage diverse families, partner with them to provide information and support to help children succeed in school, and address the call to build strong and enduring family engagement all along a child’s learning pathways from early childhood through high school.Presenters include:• Whitney Henderson, navigator-in-chief, EdNavigator• Windy Lopez-Aflitto, vice president of content and partnerships, Learning Heroes• Elisabeth Stock, Chief executive officer and co-founder, PowerMyLearningWe hope you can attend the webinar and participate in the online chat to pose questions, share resources, and interact with the presenters and other webinar participants. If you can’t make it, the webinar will be available as a free webinar-on-demand as will a related resource center. Stay tuned for a future GFRP blog post on the webinar, including ideas from the chat.Download the complete report to learn about successful models and how to address the five high-leverage areas identified by researchers: attendance, data sharing, academic and social development, digital media, and transition points.
