Special event for families, community groups, educators and administrators
With the latest CDC recommendations limiting small group gatherings, IDRA is canceling the live stream parent institute that was set for March 27. We will reschedule the popular in-person event for a later date once it is safe to do so and in consultation with our partners. We look forward to seeing you when all this has passed.
Stay tuned for a detailed schedule. If you haven’t already, we encourage you to sign up for news updates.
Grounded in our unique model of family leadership in education, the Annual IDRA La Semana del Niño Parent Institute is an event where families lead each other in advocating for equitable and excellent education in their communities.
This annual institute offers families, school district personnel and community groups from across the country the opportunity to network, obtain resources and information, and receive training and bilingual materials on IDRA’s nationally-recognized research-based model for parent leadership in education. The institute is interactive and participatory. All presentations are bilingual (English-Spanish).
