      How Family Engagement Can Improve Student Engagement and Attendance

        Online

        Overdeck Family Foundation, Carnegie Corporation of New York, and the U.S. Department of Education have partnered to launch a six-month virtual Family Engagement Learning Series exploring bright spots in the field with resources and evidence-based strategies to support student success.

        Join us on Tuesday, March 28th at 1 p.m. EST for the second part of this series focused on how family engagement can improve student engagement and attendance.

        Experts in the field will share the latest research and on-the-ground lessons for how family engagement has helped their states, districts, and schools measurably boost student engagement and attendance. The conversation will be moderated by Hedy Cheng, founder and Executive Director of Attendance Works, and will focus on the work of EveryDay Labs, Parent Teacher Home Visits, and TalkingPoints, which all have evidence of improving attendance, together with districts that have implemented these practices using American Rescue Plan Funding and ESSER II funds.  

        School and district attendees will walk away with knowledge about what funding is available to improve attendance and student engagement, and what evidence-based resources and practices can help them accomplish these goals.
