This is from an email I received:
It is our pleasure to invite you to a symposium on Transformative Family Engagement to be held at the White House on July 30-31, 2014.
Representatives from the White House, the U.S. Department of Education, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the W.K. Kellogg Foundation are excited to bring together administration officials, philanthropic partners, family engagement leaders and field experts to expand the conversation about family engagement as a major contributor to children’s school readiness and success.
From the nation’s capital to communities across the country, there is a clear need to better align and leverage strategies, policies and investments that greatly contribute to creating environments in which all children can succeed. It is our hope that this symposium will strengthen the foundation for building pathways for leaders in families, schools and communities to work together toward the same goal of success for all children through a shared vision for and commitment to transformative family engagement efforts.
I suspect it’s a very well-circulated email so, if you didn’t receive one, I assume you can just contact the Kellogg Foundation to get an invitation.
I can’t go, but would definitely be interested in hearing who else is attending. If you’re going, and want to write a guest post about what happens, please let me know.
