2016 PEI: Building Rigorous and Robust PreK-3 Family Engagement

May 5, 2016, from 9:00 to 3:00, at the Minnesota Department of Education

The focus of the institute this year is family engagement from birth to 3rd grade. Our goal is to help districts and community partners create and implement authentic, effective family engagement practices. This event is the first of three family engagement professional development opportunities (see the Series Overview tab for more information).

Participants will:

  • Learn from other practitioners on a variety of topics related to family engagement,
  • Exchange ideas and build relationships with others committed to family engagement,
  • Learn about family diversity, including families where English is a second language,
  • Explore new tools, skills and approaches to effectively engage families,
  • Create ways to work in collaboration with others in their community
  • Share successful family engagement initiatives and find alternative solutions to tough problems, and
  • Revitalize ourselves for the family engagement work yet to be done!
