April 12 Workshop To Focus on Parent Advocacy Skills

April 9, 2010

Parents from the MCPS Parent Advisory Council (PAC) will lead an April 12 workshop, “Can We Talk? Speaking Up for Your Children to Help Them Succeed.”

Created and presented by PAC members, the workshop will offer parent-to-parent information on how to talk effectively with teachers to help children be successful in school. Parents will have the opportunity to share tips with other parents and take home helpful resources.

The parent advocacy workshop is scheduled for Monday, April 12, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the auditorium of the Carver Educational Services Center, 850 Hungerford Drive in Rockville. Register for the workshop online, by phone at 301-517-5940, or at the door. Free childcare will be provided for children ages 4–12, and interpretation will be available. 

The workshop is being coordinated by the Office of Communications and Family Outreach and the PAC. The PAC provides advice to the school system on ways to strengthen parent involvement and improve communication between families and schools.
