Second Annual DC Parent & Family Engagement Summit
Recognized by the US Department of Education (ED) as “one of the most comprehensive and commendable” parent and family outreach efforts in the nation, Passport to Excellence is a day-long event designed to empower, inform and inspire parents by providing an update on the implementation of the State Education Plan, and through a host of workshops and exhibits, vital information and community resources geared towards promoting successful educational outcomes for their children.
This year, parents will have the opportunity to:
- Attend workshops on topic areas such as bullying prevention, understanding the State Report Card, becoming their child's first teacher and how to use OSSE's exciting new resource, LearnDC;
- Gain first-hand knowledge on how feedback parents provided last year has been implemented into the State Education Plan; and
- Engage community organizations and providers about programs and resources available for students and families.
