Presenter: Maria Nielsen
Topic: Webinar Download the Handout
Maria Nielsen shares how you as parents can be vital members of a school’s learning community. She discusses how a school works as a PLC, how PLCs differ from traditional schools, and what that means for your child. Participants learn how teachers work in collaborative teams to ensure high learning levels for all students through a guaranteed and viable curriculum. Parenting is always a balancing act. Acquire strategies for how to support a child’s learning without doing the work. Maria helps parents learn warning signs that a child is experiencing academic or social–emotional challenges—and how parents and the school can work collaboratively to overcome them.
In this session, parents:
- Celebrate the culture of schools that emphasizes high levels of learning for all students.
- Understand the importance of focusing on essential learning and how to monitor each student.
- Examine the role assessment plays in a child’s education and how teachers use data to provide additional time and support for intervention or extension of essential standards.
