Wondering how to engage the parents in your school community? We’ve got you covered.

Ed100 Announces New Parent Leader Guide

We’ve put together a Parent Leader Guide to help you keep parents up to date on the most important education issues. This new resource helps you plan parent meetings that fuel conversations and answer questions that really matter, like these:

It’s all here: Lessons, sample email invitations, discussion prompts, suggestions on how to take action, and resources including handouts and additional reading to learn more.

You are busy. We hope this ready-to-go guide takes the guesswork out of meeting planning.

Topics include:

How to Use the Parent Leader Guide:

  • As Mini-Trainings for your board or leadership committee. These resources work well as trainings that can be as brief as 15 minutes.
  • At general meetings, to support discussions about education or legislative advocacy
  • As an informal book club with a small group of interested parents and teachers.
  • As formal learning material for committees to help provide a foundation for their work throughout the year.
