As districts, schools, and families grapple with the pressure of “returning to normal,” it is time to mind the widening gaps between our humanity and innovation, our hearts and our heads, and our lives before and after March 13, 2020. In this webinar, we will host an honest conversation about the tried-and-true family engagement practices that should be prioritized while manifesting all that we’ve learned in the past 19 months. The more things change, the more they stay the same. Family-school partnerships will continue to evolve with a focus on where we’ve been and where we can go.
Coaction Collective + SchoolSmartKC are proud to bring together a panel of experts for this important and timely conversation.
