THANK YOU so much! I had the meeting and just love your patient and wise approach. First, I'm glad there's not a million known and obvious things because it's a reminder that it's a process to work through and relationship-building is important. Somehow, oddly, that's a relief.
I will admit I also thought survey/assess but also that we should try to find parent/teacher teams from other schools that have AWESOME parent engagement and just see if there are things we can copy or attempt while also addressing what we've not done well regarding parent engagement.
YOU OWE ME NOTHING. You, bringing you to this space, IS THE GIFT. It is needed and appreciated and important. Thanks for sharing your experiences and wheelhouse! It has helped!
P.S. Remembering the "why" of it is especially helpful... the kind of obvious thing that is often overlooked and I know that and almost did it myself. SO THANK YOU!!!
