Engaging Families in the Pathway to College

presented by
Anne T. Henderson

*What does a family-school partnership look like?

*How can schools and teachers encourage parents to become educational advocates for their children?

The flip side of dropout prevention is planning for a positive future. Families play a critical role in helping student set goals, navigate the system, and plan for post-secondary education and a career. What school staff do to inform and support families to play this role makes an enormous difference to student success. Learn what the research says about specific practices that school staff and community partners have used in schools that are beating the odds with low-income students.
