Engaging Parents EDAU 9765 Credits: 3 Only $499
Do all schools have a plan to increase parent involvement, and how do we really get them in the door? While many educators know the value of meaningful school‐home‐community interactions, in culturally diverse communities this can often be problematic. This course examines strategies for effective parent and community engagement, with an emphasis in urban/diverse communities. This course will explore the benefits of parent and community engagement, specific guidance for speaking, listening, and implementing a communication system, and provides strategies for dealing with problematic parents and guardians. We will discuss the importance of building relationships with all stakeholders in the community in order to support student achievement.
