The purpose of this workshop is to aid districts in developing family engagement strategies to meet PI.26 (Education for Employment) requirements. Participants will have time to develop family engagement strategies and share best practices related to academic and career planning.  The PTA's National Standards for Family-School Partnerships and other resources will be used to aid strategy development. 

Administrative rule PI-26 (Education for Employment) includes the following language concerning family engagement:

The school district’s long-range Education for Employment program shall include…

 A process used to engage parents in academic and career planning. The process shall do all of the following:
      1. Inform parents in each school year about what academic and career planning services their child receives.
      2. Provide parents with multiple opportunities during each school year to participate in their child's academic and career planning.
      3. Update parents throughout the school year on the progress of their child's academic and career planning.
