Get Parents on Board with School Transformation Through Authentic Engagement

The Sharon Academy team will begin by describing a specific element of our shift to a proficiency-based paradigm: seeking out and responding to feedback from colleges and universities around a truly proficiency-based transcript. We will explain how we engaged with all constituencies—especially with parents—around the conclusions and decisions we came to as a result of that research. Participants will have a chance to talk to each other in small groups about what authentic community engagement looks like (or could look like) at their schools, and some strategies for effectively engaging a school community around a transformational change.

Participants will learn how one school sought information from colleges to get a clear sense of receptivity to proficiency-based transcripts and the value they found in gathering and honoring feedback on school transformation initiatives with parents and other constituencies to help the community get on board.
