Caregivers as Collaborators

Let's talk about how we can work with parents to help support your students' education and social emotional needs in and outside of the classroom.

Topics include:

- Suggestions on how to communicate with guardians

- Suggestions on how to collaborate with guardians whose children are struggling/at-risk

- When to contact guardians and how to formulate E-mails or when to make phone calls

- Suggestions on how to structure parent meetings

- How to support parents who are struggling

- How to work with frustrated parents

 

The goal is to provide you with information/strategies that you can use while also working collaboratively with your colleagues to come up with ideas on how to better connect with the guardians of your at-risk youth.
