Strengthening family-school partnerships has perhaps never been more critical than it is today. Join this webinar to hear from Karen L. Mapp, Ed.D., senior lecturer at the Harvard Graduate School of Education (HGSE) and author of “Partners in Education: A Dual Capacity-Building Framework for Family-School Partnerships” (2014) about family engagement in school districts as a critical lever for increasing student achievement, especially amidst the plethora of challenges stemming from today’s unique context.
This webinar will cover how to:
- Build authentic partnerships with families using Mapp’s Dual Capacity-Building Framework
- Explore how COVID-19 has strengthened the role of families as co-creators of their children’s education
- Gain actionable tools and strategies for your school or district to empower families as learning partners and drive equitable outcomes for students
- Support educators in activating the power of collaboration between teachers, students, and families and in using family perception data for school improvement planning
