Connected Principals, a group of administrators from the United States and Canada for whom I have the greatest respect, are sponsoring a free online discussion this Sunday afternoon on:
…the importance of parent engagement in our school improvement efforts. The Connected Principals believe strongly that the only way we can have meaningful change is to have parents engaged in this work.
Parents, teachers, and other administrators are welcome to participate in the 5:30-6:30 p.m. (EST) discussion.
The announcement goes on to say:
While many of us have parents involved in our schools, few of us have parents engaged as active voices in our school improvement initiatives. This discussion will feature both the Parent and the Principal voice while touching on some of the concrete actions some school communities are taking to engage parents.
