We are excited to announce that our October Elluminate Session this Sunday from 5:30-6:30 p.m. (EST) will focus on the importance of parent engagement in our school improvement efforts. The Connected Principals believe strongly that the only way we can have meaningful change is to have parents engaged in this work.

While many of us have parents involved in our schools, few of us have parents engaged as active voices in our school improvement initiatives. This discussion will feature both the Parent and the Principal voice while touching on some of the concrete actions some school communities are taking to engage parents.

We hope you will join us as Janet Avery, Chris Wejr, George Couros and Patrick Larkin talk about things that are happening in their schools to increase parent engagement. In addition, we are thrilled to have Penny Lindballe, a parent from Alberta, Canada to discuss

what parents expect from administrators.

The Connected Principals greatly appreciate the support of Shelly Terrell, who will once again moderate our monthly chat.

These real-time events are delivered using Elluminate complete with audio, chat and desktop sharing.

    This just made me realise that we do a great job of involving parents in creative ways but have not considered involving the parents in the planning stage…could be a nightmare finding the right ones…but what a great thought.
