Virtual Parent Night Resource

For the past two years QACPS has partnered with the nonprofit organization Changing Perspectives to help promote social-emotional learning and cultivate inclusive and equitable learning communities for all students. Changing Perspectives helps provide curriculum resources, individual coaching, professional development training, and resources for families.

On Wednesday, April 6th, from 5:00-6:00 PM, there will be a Virtual Parent Night with Sam Drazin from Changing Perspectives. He will discuss the program and ways for families to promote and engage with Social Emotional Learning (see attached workshop information sheet).
