Private schools have for years focused attention on providing meaningful parent education programs as a means of cultivating and supporting strong school-to-family partnerships. This is still an excellent strategy—and continues to meet important needs. It’s disappointing for everyone involved, however, when only a fraction of your families show up.
Our culture today is fraught with overscheduling, too little sleep, and too many claims on parents’ time that take them away from their primary parenting responsibilities. Join us to learn practical ways to boost parent participation by designing educational experiences that meet them where they are logistically and emotionally. In other words: learn how to anticipate and take care of the most basic things, so they can “hear” you when you talk about the most important things.
- How to anticipate and meet parents’ most basic needs first
- How to select topics that meet their learning needs AND help the school win approval of and support for key educational paradigmatic change initiatives
- How to make your parent education program fun for parents and children
- How to use your parent education program as a tool to reach prospective families and gain influence in your external community
