2016 Family Engagement Institute

In August, principals, teachers, parent leaders, community partners and other key district staff came together for the Road Map Project Family Engagement Institute from August 16-18 in SeaTac. Attendees were part of action-driven teams from the seven school districts with the Road Map Project region.

The Institute was just the beginning of the development of multiple phases of year-round capacity-building supports for the region’s districts and community-based organizations.  The Institute is being planned by a consultant team from the Institute for Educational Leadership with significant contributions from local planning teams that include parents, representatives from all seven Road Map region school districts and several partner organizations. The Institute is also supported by significant contributions from College Spark Washington and Social Venture Partners Seattle.

There were four objectives for the summer institute. By the end of the institute participants:

  • Came away with a clear understanding of what authentic family engagement is based on the dual capacity-building framework
  • Left with tangible tools to move their teams to immediate action
  • Learned how to utilize culturally responsive family engagement to drive equity and transform systems
  • Built trust and relationships across boundaries they formally held

Due to space constraints, registration was only available to invitees. For more information or if you have questions, please contact Carlina Brown-Banks cbbanks@ccedresults.org.
