Districts Increase Efforts to Connect With Parents, Share Resources

Consortium districts are creating new opportunities to welcome families into their schools and demonstrating that building connections with families occurs all year–not just at the beginning of the school year.

The Temecula Valley Unified School District’s Welcome Center hosted a gathering for military parents last month, providing resources and informing them about upcoming workshops provided by the San Diego Parent-toParent (PtoP) team, as well as the work of the Studentto-Student (S2S) groups. Belisa Guerrero, TVUSD’s family engagement specialist organized the event.

Meanwhile, at Fallbrook High School, Nicole Webb, a military parent, used the school’s orientation for incoming freshmen to provide resources to families and make them aware of PtoP and S2S events.
