I have been doing research regarding the topic - Partnering with Parents/Parent Engagement. The following are two resources I have found to be full of great ideas are a quick read.
OMG! Meeting Magic In Education by Carolyn S Marard, PHD and Bradley D. Manard, ED.D. I had the opportunity to hear Carolyn speak at a Family and Education Partnership state meeting. Her presentation was all about setting IEP meetings up for success.
Partnering with Parents to ask the right questions - by Luz Santana, Kan Rothstein, and Agnes Bain
Next year I will have a presentation and blog post based on the research I have been doing. There are three common themes I can share from my research so far:
1. It takes Time, Time, and more Time
2. Relationships are critical and the foundation
3. Direct Intentions - Partnerships with families don't just happen.
