Family, School, and Community Partnerships

Making it through school can be very challenging for some. While some students thrive, others may fall short and fail to meet their potential. How can we help our young people succeed? Students tend to have the most successful outcomes when they feel supported and connected to others in their lives, especially caregivers, teachers & staff, community leaders, and positive peer influences. This session will explore ideas to build positive relationships and support systems designed to enhance family, school, and community partnerships.
