Our nation is divided in many ways on whether or not children should return to school in these difficult times of COVID-19. There are many fears and anxieties about the health risks. Others fear child achievement will suffer if children stay home any longer. Either way, decisions have been made to reopen schools, and we all must prepare.
This session will share family engagement strategies and activities that can help with the safety of children, schools, and educators. Additionally, family literacy will be explained to show how it can be intertwined with family engagement for positive outcomes, and how parents and teachers can build effective partnerships for success to ensure the safety of children, educators, schools, and communities.
