Join WestEd at the Wisconsin State Education Convention, which will be held January 23 through 25, at the Wisconsin Center in Milwaukee. The theme of the conference is Leading with Excellence and Equity.
Maria Paredes, Melinda Wallace, and Joseph Sassone of WestEd’s Comprehensive School Assistance Program will participate in the session, “Moving from Traditional Parent Involvement to Effective Family Engagement” on Thursday, January 24, 8:45-9:45am, in room 202.
This session will highlight four Wisconsin school districts that are on the cutting edge of making significant changes in shifting from traditional parent involvement activities to effectively engaging families in school partnerships.
Wisconsin principals and teachers will share their experiences implementing parent-teacher teams using the resources provided by a partnership between the Department of Public Instruction and WestEd.
Participants will learn the process used to change the adult mindset in deepening family-teacher relationships while working collaboratively to make gains in student learning and student achievement outcomes.
Be sure to visit us at booth #323 to meet our staff and learn more about WestEd’s services, research, and resources.
WestEd’s Academic Parent-Teach Teams is a model of family engagement that is grounded in the notion that schools can thrive when families and teachers work together, as genuine partners, to maximize student learning inside and outside of school. Learn more.
