CSHS Lecture and Discussion Series

The Role of Family Engagement in Promoting Safe & Healthy Schools

presented by Joyce L Epstein, PhD

What are the barriers to gaining familial trust in school? How can they be overcome? What more must schools do to connect with families to promote resiliency and academic success in all students?

Join the Center for Safe and Healthy Schools on November 20, 2019, for a discussion with the renowned Joyce L. Epstein, who will address the role of family engagement in promoting safe and healthy schools. Dr. Epstein argues that strong family engagement is key to building school supports that allow students to thrive emotionally and socially.

A reception will follow.
