Family Symposium 2012

Family Symposium scheduled for Oct. 20 at Chief Sealth International High School

Families, students, staff and community members of Seattle Public Schools are invited to participate in the annual Family Symposium scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 20 at Chief Sealth International High School.

The goal of the symposium is to support families as fundamental partners in their student’s academic success. SPS will offer workshops and other resources for families and community partners to help support student academic achievement at home and in the community.

The symposium, which runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., includes a resource fair with community booths and activities for children ages 4 and up. Families will learn how to support their children in the areas of early learning, math, reading and writing, college and career readiness, special education, essay writing for college entrance, graduation requirements and four-year planning, and financial planning. A light continental breakfast and lunch will also be provided.

In addition, SPS enrollment specialists will be available to help parents complete early enrollment paperwork for the 2013-14 school year, and interpreters will be provided.

For more information, call Bernardo Ruiz at (206) 252-0693.

I wonder if these symposiums are the best way to connect with families. Seems like the connection needs to be on a more personal and direct level than a cattle call. I realize it helps to check the box of "family engagement outreach", but other methodologies to balance this kind of thing out would be welcome.
