Improving Military Student Outcomes Through Effective Professional Collaboration
Webinar Series, Part 2 of 4
Approximately 80-90% of school-aged children in military families attend school in their local school district. Students and their families face unique circumstances related to military service and individual educational needs. A variety of education and family support professionals exist on the military installation and within local schools and communities to provide tailored support for a student or family’s specific needs. To do that successfully, these professionals must communicate, collaborate, and engage with one another, students, and families.
This webinar series will focus on the skills needed by professionals working with military- connected students ages 5-22 and their families to successfully collaborate with one another, engage with families, and leverage military and civilian community resources to support each family and their individual needs.
These free webinars are easy to join and offer continuing education credits. Participants are encouraged to attend all sessions, but it is not necessary. Webinars are recorded and archived for later viewing if live attendance is not possible.
Many educational decisions are made based on the trust built between professional partnerships within schools, military installations, and the local community. Military students are best supported when these collaborative relationships exist before there are challenges. This session assists key collaborators (e.g., school liaisons, EFMP FSP, teachers) in learning how to create trusting professional partnerships so that students and families have successful school experiences.
In this webinar we will:
- Deepen our understanding of the central role, rights, and responsibilities of families within family-professional partnerships.
- Learn the primary tenants of strong family-school partnerships.
- Gain strategies for improving family-to-professional and professional-to-professional partnerships.
Approved for 1.5 hours of CFLE continuing education credit.
