Upcoming Professional Learning Opportunities


Engaging Parents Through Support

SESSION DESCRIPTION: COVID-19 has made effectively reaching and supporting families even more important than ever! During this 6 hour asynchronous learning series you will discover the eight types of parents/caregivers you may interact with each year. As you discover each type of parent, you will reflect on your past experiences and make connections between engagement and support. Doing so will raise your awareness and apply that awareness to enable yourself to build stronger parent/caregiver engagement.

  • WHO: Anyone who educates and/or supports parents or families of the youth you serve during or after school.

We can Personalize Professional Learning!

The following topics can be offered inspirational keynote addresses (45 min – 2 hours), full day (6 hours) or half day (3 hours) workshops.  While each topic can be ‘stand alone’, we recommend school and district leaders choose to offer these trainings in a manner that is aligned to ESSA’s Six (6) Exemplary Professional Learning Criteria.  We offer free consultation to shift any training from ‘one and done’ to ESSA aligned professional learning.
