January 24, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm PST
Join Chelsea Jelic from POPARD, on January 24th for Effective Collaboration Between Families/Caregivers and School Staff at 1:00 pm
Families have the opportunity to work with their child’s school team in a variety of ways throughout the school year. This session will review:
• Connections between the roles, rights and responsibilities of teaching staff, administrators, and parents.
• Relevant policies and procedures that guide programming and support in the school environment.
• Benefits of effective home-school collaboration and how to work towards solutions.
• Information on advocacy steps and supports.
