Congratulations! You’ve made it past the beginning of the school year and built variable baseline relationships with your students’ families. Now’s the time to maximize those partnerships for the good of the students. To quote TalkingPoints founder and CEO, “Families are the game-changer.”

In this edWebinar, the presenters discuss what comes after meaningful parent-teacher conferences. How do teachers turn those check-ins into lasting partnerships focused on student success post-conferences? Viewers explore best practices—through their own past experiences, peer discussion, and interactive tasks—for proactive and positive family engagement. Let’s maximize the power of partnership this year in pursuit of student outcomes. You are not alone.

This recorded edWebinar is of interest to K-12 teachers.
