Does your school struggle to meaningfully engage a diverse cross-section of parents? Do parents express feeling marginalized at times? If so, this workshop is designed for you. Through an interactive agenda, facilitators Shane Safir (co-founder of June Jordan School for Equity) and Carmelita Reyes (principal of the award-winning Oakland International High School) will support you to 1) consider the role of listening in parent engagement; 2) unpack common challenges around parent engagement; 3) engage in a role-play activity to practice listening and building relationships with parents; 4) learn some basic "hacks" for parent engagement; and 5) design a parent engagement and empowerment plan.
