Our Virtual Approach

Through a virtual platform, parents and teachers will gain new knowledge and skills that assist their school team in building school, family, and community partnerships in order to support academic achievement.

As a component of the academy, each school team will develop an understanding of and utilize virtual resources to create a final partnership project based upon a goal from the school’s improvement plan.

Monthly Modules will include:

  • Live Collaborations
  • Guest Speakers
  • Team Connections for School Teams
  • Project Checkpoints
  • Additional Resources
