Center for Family, School, Community Engagement

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 involvement programs at schools. We also offer a new Parent Leadership Professional Development Certificate for parent leaders to help involve more families in school activities from preschool-high school and at those serving on district level committees. Download our Parent Leadership Professional Development Certificate Brochure.
