Region 16 ESC and the Title I Statewide School Support and Family & Community Engagement Initiative is excited to invite you to the 2015 Statewide Parental Involvement Conference, December 10-12, 2015, at the Arlington Convention Center, Arlington, Texas. This will be our 11th year to host this amazing event. The conference will provide opportunities for educators, parents, and community leaders to learn strategies for empowering all stakeholders to increase student achievement and to meet the required mandates of the Elementary and Secondary Education (ESEA) Act.
The conference, “Parental Involvement: TEAM Together Everyone Achieves More promises to build the capacity of all the participants in the parental involvement and family and community engagement arena. If no child is to be left behind, it is paramount that we all work together as one! After all, teamwork is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results!
Texas Education Agency (TEA) staff will offer multiple concurrent sessions that will provide the most up to date ESEA requirements and legislative/reauthorization updates in parental involvement. The top parental involvement practitioners from around the state will offer presentations demonstrating scientifically based research practices and strategies that will result in increased parental involvement, as well as higher achievement for all students. There will also be a series of workshops provided in Spanish and translators will be provided at all the general sessions.
Come join us in Arlington, we look forward to seeing you!
