Building Capacity and Strengthening Partnerships for Family Engagement

Tuesday, Sep. 25th, 8:30am-3:30pm

1314 Hines

San Antonio, TX

ESSA, Building Capacity (section 1116) has long been a requirement of LEAs and schools, but for many it has been a perfunctory task rather than a useful tool designed to increase parent and family engagement in a way that increases student achievement.


This session will provide a quick overview of the ESSA, Building Capacity requirements and strategies to help work innovatively with parents and families. Techniques for working collaboratively with families will be discussed. Session will also include a presentation by a model school who is doing exceptional work with their families.


Extensive handouts and resources will be provided.


Intended Audience: ESC Staff, Federal Program Directors, Administrators, Parent and Family Engagement Liaisons
