Family Engagement

In this National Student Support Accelerator Webinar, we will be discussing the ways in which your program can foster positive and constructive engagement with students’ families. By communicating effectively with families, you can increase their trust in your program – and this communication can happen through a variety of different channels.

Throughout this webinar, we will walk through the importance and possible modes of communication between you and your students’ families. We will first explain how an introductory statement can be used to begin this program-family relationship, and then describe how phone calls, texting, emailing, using shared drives, and meeting face-to-face can be strong ways to communicate with students’ families.
