Parent Connection is a new parent engagement group - an exciting collaboration between Parent University and LBUSD Superintendent, Dr. Jill Baker Ed.D! Dr. Baker will engage with parents and members of our community, and lead a dialogue of current District issues, with a focus on the Learning Acceleration & Support Plan and Communications. In addition, each monthly meeting will feature an informational parent education workshop.
The Superintendent Parent Connection: Purpose
Create opportunities for human connection between parents/caregivers, superintendent and district staff.
Provide districtwide information for parents/caregivers to enhance access and connection to schools and district resources.
Engage in two-way communication with parents/caregivers to inform continuous improvement efforts.
The Superintendent Parent Connection: Assumptions
Parents/caregivers are their child’s first teachers.
Each parent/caregiver wants their child to have a school experience characterized by high expectations and care.
Students’ lives are enhanced when parents/caregivers are involved.
A home - school connection fostered by teachers and school staff positively contributes to student success.
