This course is designed to inform both regular and special education teachers about ways in which to invite and sustain parent involvement in your schools and programs. The course uses resources from Improving Relationships & Results: Building Family School Partnerships which were developed by NationalCenter for Special Education Accountability Monitoring (NCSEAM) in collaboration with the Future of School Psychology Task Force on Family School Partnerships. Throughout the course you will explore a variety or resources and strategies to build and sustain a positive partnership with the parents of your students. As a final course project, you will design a plan for implementing at least three involvement strategies throughout the school year.
