The U.S. Department of Education has teamed with Carnegie Corporation of New York and Overdeck Family Foundation to present the virtual Family Engagement Learning Series, which begins Feb. 28.
“Research tells us that engaging families helps overcome obstacles to learning and that students are more apt to succeed in school when those closest to them are deeply involved,” U.S. Education Secretary Dr. Miguel A. Cardona said in a press release. “This new learning series is about equipping educators, school and district leaders, and community partners with the most promising models for deepening relationships with parents and students, and highlighting how districts can use the American Rescue Plan’s historic $130 billion investment in education in support of these efforts.”
The Feb. 28 session begins at 1 p.m. ET and will focus on how family engagement can support math and literacy. Subsequent sessions will take place over the next six months on the fourth Tuesday of the month, covering such topics as student and school safety, student mental health and college readiness.
