Introducing Friday CAFE "After Hours"

A Conversation for Families, Teachers, and Other Family Engagement Heroes

Reimagining Full, Equal and Equitable Partnerships between Home and School

A new school year in a continuing pandemic presents opportunities for families and teachers to partner in new ways.  How can we use lessons learned from the shutdown last spring to build full, equal, and equitable partnerships between families and teachers to promote all children’s learning and development? *

Join us for three facilitated conversations to reimagine how families and teachers can work together.  We will explore the foundations of equitable partnerships in the session below.

Linking Family Engagement to Student Learning
Register for November 19, 7:00-8:00 p.m. 

All sessions are free and will be on Zoom.

* In Connecticut, family engagement is defined as a full, equal, and equitable partnership among families, educators, and community partners to promote children’s learning and development from birth through college and career. Learn more here.
