African American Parent and Community Engagement
AAPAC PD Overview
The ETSA Department is proud to present new training for the development of site AAPACs. The training is designed to help school leaders engage and empower African American parents. During the initial training we will (a) discuss brain-based preconditions for engagement, (b) connect research on Black student achievement to parent engagement, (c) review a case study of a former SBCUSD student, and (d) discuss six steps for engaging and empowering Black parents. The initial training is four hours over two sessions (two hours per session). After completing the two sessions, follow up meetings will be scheduled with principals to support action plan implementation. The infographic above shows schools that have completed the initial 4-hour training and the AAPAC Action Plan they are now completing.
This training is for principals and small teams of up to five people. Teams may include vice principals, program facilitators, office staff (e.g., secretaries, clerks), and others whose roles center on African American parent engagement and customer service. Teams may attend along with—not in place of—their principal.
