There are many questions that come up for parents and community members when discussing education’s most pressing issues:

  • How have schools leveraged parent engagement to support students academically?
  • What are districts doing to support English Learners and their parents understand the reclassification process?
  • What conversations are happening around early education – attendance, summer learning loss, etc?
  • What can parents do to be strong advocates for all children?
  • How are communities monitoring and supporting the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF)?
  • How are future teachers preparing to implement parent engagement practices into their work?
  • Where does technology fit into all of this?

CR4P1330Alliance 2015 breakout sessions are designed to present content at the intersection of policy and practice, and to address these and many more key questions. Alliance 2015 participants will:

  • Learn how the Moreno Valley Unified School District in partnership with the California League of Middle Schools, and Families In Schools, reclassified 43 percent of their English Learners.
  • Explore how the UCLA Center X, pre-service teacher training in parent engagement benefits family-school partnerships
  • Discover how districts authentically engage parents in the era of LCFF
  • Gain insights on how the family-caregiver partnership can engage foster youth.

And much more!

Alliance 2015 is the place where parents, school administration, education and community leaders engage in meaningful conversations and joint learning to support the success of all students. Visit our Alliance 2015 page for more information on what is planned for the day.

This year’s Alliance Summit will culminate with Families In Schools’ (FIS) 15th Year Anniversary Gala. The Gala program will commemorate the work FIS has led in building partnerships between parents, schools and communities to support lifelong student success. The program will also honor key community partners who have supported our work, including First 5 LA and JP Morgan Chase.
