Parent involvement has a causal relationship to greater academic achievement, fewer risky behaviors in teens, stronger parent-teacher/school relationships, improved child behavior, higher graduation rates, and increased postsecondary education. These benefits begin in preschool, by helping parents see and learn from the breath and depth of educators' expertise, and also by creating the habit of being engaged in their children's education from a young age. Parents and educators share the same goal: student success, but often find themselves on opposite sides of the fence. How do we get parents to see we’re on the same team? In this interactive session, participants will examine their current parent engagement efforts for indicators that demonstrate shared values, mutual respect, and a spirit of collaboration while maintaining the educators professional values and integrity.
