Bi-County Early Learning Family Engagement Summit

Join us for a dynamic forum on meaningful family engagement to transform early learning systems from preschool to grade three!

Through funding from the Heising-Simons Foundation, San Mateo and Santa Clara County Offices of Education are hosting a Bi-County Early Learning Family Engagement Summit. The Summit is designed for:

  • raising the awareness of preschool to grade 3 organizational leaders and practitioners about an authentic, meaningful, and transformational approach to family engagement;
  • supporting administrators and practitioners in identifying effective and meaningful family engagement strategies that can be implemented within their communities;
  • engaging with San Mateo and Santa Clara County sites that are implementing family engagement initiatives;
  • creating a team family engagement work plan with actionable, short-term strategies that can be implemented after the Summit in support of LCAP and other family engagement goals.

Interactive learning sessions:

  • Culturally responsive family engagement
  • Be Strong Families Parent Cafe, a parent leadership strategy
  • Using technology to engage families
  • Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) family engagement strategies
