GPA to Offer Virtual Parent Advocacy Series

April 23, 2020 – To help parents be more interactive in making decisions that affect children at school, Guilford Parent Academy (GPA) is offering a three-part virtual parent engagement series.

“The Empowered Parent: Your Power, Your Voice, Your Advocacy,” will offer tips on working with systems to ensure students are getting the best possible care and support.

The first two sessions will explore how “parent voice” contributes to the well-being of students in the classroom and in life, and how it assists families to advocate on behalf of their children and the school. In the third session, participants will discover social-emotional learning, its influence on academic learning and how families can encourage their children to be successful learners.
