The shift of teaching and learning from in-person to remote/hybrid has greatly impacted how we support students’ academic progress. The relationships, routines, and resources that are the foundation for effective partnerships between families and the school community now require a new approach.
In this session, we’ll begin to explore the family partnerships and best practices that establish a thriving learning environment for all students.
Modes of Learning
Facilitators will guide a conversation using the Families as Partners overview presentation (linked below). Each participant will need a copy of the Families as Partners Survey Workbook (electronic or printed). A quick video (embedded in the slide deck and linked below) is included in the presentation.
