The rationale for strengthening family engagement draws on years of both research and practice. However, family engagement continues to be a daunting task for many initiatives. The workshop will provide relevant information on the research of how parenting changes as children grow and develop, current engagement strategies, and successful best practices from the field. The workshop will offer opportunities to network, dialogue, and design parent activities that participants can implement with their own schools.
