It is imperative that parents become and/or remain involved in their child's education as he or she transitions into high school.
As parents and teachers, we must create a more seamless family engagement path, a way into and out of high school so families remain engaged throughout their teen's high school grades.
Join us this Wednesday night (9PM EST / 6PM PST) as parents and educators discuss family engagement strategies geared toward secondary schools.
