Free Educator Webinar Series

Last month I shared with you these free educator webinar series on Building Stronger School-Family Partnerships.

If you are looking for some Family Engagement professional development that you can do on your own time, that is FREE and will give you some tools to engage your families with, I highly encourage you to take the time to check these out!

There are 3 webinars in the series and the first 2 have already been completed. HOWEVER, the recordings are available.

I participated in the 1st one, missed the 2nd one due to Spring Break, but did watch it at a later time. I am working on completing the assignments so I can receive my credit hours and certificate.

Why don't you consider hosting the webinar on your campus? This is a great opportunity to engage with your families while they learn a new skill!
