ESSA Requirements for Schools and Parent Involvement – Training Kit

This kit is the first in a set of four developed from the Annual IDRA La Semana del Niño Parent Institute in 2017 for use in training and technical assistance for school districts to strengthen family engagement. See overview article, “ESSA Requirements for Schools and Parent Involvement – New Tool for School Districts,” by Aurelio M. Montemayor, M.Ed.

The first kit is based on a presentation by David Hinojosa, IDRA Director of National Policy, focusing on ESSA requirements for schools and parent involvement.
