The Future of Parent-Led Schools


COVID-19 has closed our campuses and promoted parents to front-line educators. Join us for a discussion on how the role of parents is changing.

Shani Dowell, Educator, Founder and CEO of Possip, owns a nationwide tech company that allows for a constant feedback loop between parents and schools. Her company is leading the charge in ensuring equity by empowering all parents to have their voices heard. Click here to read more about Ms. Dowell and Possip in USA Today.

Marilyn Koziatek, Candidate for LAUSD School Board, leads parent engagement at Granada Hills Charter, one of the largest and highest-performing schools in the nation.

Together, we will discuss:
-How has the pandemic transformed the role of parents in their child's education?

-What are the strategies implemented by districts nationwide that had the most successful distance learning plans?

-What should parents be advocating for with their schools and districts to make sure expectations of high-quality instruction will be met for the Fall?

-How can we ensure families of color - parents and students - are valued and understood by school staff?

-How can we use lessons from the school closures to re-imagine the way our schools work?

Zoom link will be provided upon RSVP.
