Upcoming Virtual Family Engagement Sessions:

TUESDAY, April 26 (DATE CHANGE): "Supporting Our Transgender Youth" - In Columbus City Schools, we celebrate our diversity. Nationally, however, the experiences of transgender young people have been very much in the news lately. When children raise questions about their gender or come out as transgender, parents may find themselves at a loss about what to do next. What do kids need from their families as they wrestle with their gender identity? Join our Virtual Family Engagement Session when our partners at Kaleidoscope Youth Center share simple ways to support your transgender child. This session has been moved to a new date on Tuesday, April 26.


THURSDAY, April 28: "Attendance in the Final Stretch" - With just a month left in the school year, now is not the time to be missing classes or coming to school late. Did you know that attendance can be a better predictor of graduation rates than test scores? During our Thursday Virtual Family Engagement Session, we’ll talk about the district’s ongoing efforts to keep students in school and help families overcome the hurdles that make it difficult for some children to get to school on-time every day. Plus, we’ll have tips and strategies for parents to motivate students to be excited about attending school even with summer fast approaching.
