Training Information & Schedule
The Center for Family, School, Community Engagement, part of the Child and Family Development Department located in the College of Education, is a state level technical assistance center for organizing school, family, and community partnerships to support increased student achievement. The Center provides regional trainings for (P-12) educators and parent leaders at schools across the state. The Center also provides a professional development certificate for parent coordinators, liaisons, and those who supervise them.
In addition to the trainings we have scheduled below, the Center also provides assistance to individual districts with planning, training and resources to implement successful family engagement programs at schools. We have worked with the Partnership for Los Angeles Schools (PLAS), Lemon Grove School District, Alameda County Office of Education, San Diego Unified School District, Whittier City School District, Bakersfield City School District, Twin Rivers Unified School District and Santa Barbara Unified School District-Family Engagement Network, to name a few.
We also offer a new Parent Leadership Professional Development Certificate using a "4M" approach to prepare identified and emerging leaders to
work effectively with educators to reach out and engage other families in their children’s education to make
sure all students are college and career ready. Click here for a flyer with additional information.
