Building Stronger Relationships with Families

Families play a critical role in the life and development of our students. However, we work in a system that often excludes their voice and knowledge. Building a bridge with a particular family could, in turn, build bridges with other families in their neighborhood. Whether we are in-person or virtual, having family buy-in, support, feedback, and voice will be critical to the success of our students. We need to examine the barriers that keep us, the school, from forming these relationships and the barriers that keep them, the families, from forming relationships with us.
