Family Engagement Workshops & Events
Parent, family, and community involvement in education correlates with higher academic performance and school improvement. When schools, parents, families, and communities work together to support learning, students tend to earn higher grades, attend school more regularly, stay in school longer, and enroll in higher level programs. Successful school-parent community partnerships are not stand-alone projects or add-on programs but are well integrated with the school’s overall mission and goals. Research and fieldwork show that parent-school-partnerships improve schools, strengthen families, and build community support, and increase student achievement and success.
At the Gilliard Group, we understand the importance of family engagement in our schools. We prioritize this by creating opportunities, as well as influencing and encouraging more and more parent involvement in our children’s educational journey.
