Register for the Parent-Teacher Collaboration to Drive Student Learning webinar.
Is your district ready to develop meaningful collaboration with families that boosts student learning?
In this free webinar, Maria C. Paredes, Senior Program Associate in the Comprehensive School Assistance Program at WestEd, will share:
- A systematic approach to parent-teacher information exchange based on student grade-level achievement goals
- Improved strategies for sharing student progress data with families in a way that fosters engagement and collaboration
- Several districts that have transitioned from traditional parent-teacher conferences to a research-based approach that is outcome-oriented
- The improvements that WestEd's professional development has made in schools to raise the capacity of teachers and administrators to create purposeful family engagement
Paredes created the model family engagement in education system — Academic Parent-Teacher Teams (APTT). This highly structured approach to family engagement has produced remarkable results for students, parents, and teachers.
If you are unable to participate in this event, you may view the recorded presentation in the SchoolsMovingUp webinar archives, beginning the day after the event.
