Family, School and Community Engagement is a critical factor for nearly all educational issues. We've learned a great deal about how to effectively think about, talk about and promote Family and School Engagement to provide opportunities for all and to benefit teachers and students. In an upcoming Journal article, I've written about board members as community and political advocates and specifically about board leadership teams leading from the middle. This responsibility ties community engagement and systemic school improvement to advocacy.

Advocacy in the Community and Advocacy for the Community
This session will provide insights on how best to advocate for legislation on behalf of your community interests. Also, we will tackle the issues facing our school communities that need to be advocated for on behalf of all students.

  • discuss the issues facing the communities your school board serves;
  • learn how to ensure the needs of all students are met.
