A group of seventeen parent leaders from across the Road Map Project region met throughout 2018 to discuss how to harness the collective power of families to help our region’s youth thrive. The Parent Leadership Team, supported by the Community Café Collaborative, has drafted recommendations and strategies on how to:

  1. Improve communication challenges between schools and families
  2. Foster high-level leadership opportunities for family members to learn, mentor, and advocate together

The parent leaders connected with a broad base of diverse families, community members, and school district leadership to gather information, collect feedback, build new relationships, and identify powerful strategies to advocate together. They have proposed this plan to address disparities and set a standard for the way education systems can authentically partner with families.
