The Parent Coordination Network and the Texas Education Agency, in collaboration with the Right Question Institute,present the Webinar Series: Building Stronger School-Family Partnerships.

Nationally acclaimed speakers, Luz Santana, Co-Director & Author and Siyi Chu, Project Coordinator with the Right Question Institute, will help participants understand how The Right Question School-Family Partnership Strategy can be used as a pathway for educators and parents to work more effectively with each other – to improve communication, increase parent participation, nurture engagement, and engender better partnerships.

There will be two sessions in the Parent Series (English and Spanish):

  • One for Parents, premiering on Tuesday, April 9.
  • The Parent Series will also be offered in Spanish, with the first session on Thursday, April 11.
