Family engagement is critical to student success.
According to Youth.gov, research shows that parent/family engagement in a student’s education/school can improve test scores, attendance, social skills, relationships, behavior and how a child feels in general. But we know engagement isn’t easy for all families. ACCPTA wants to meet families where they are and provide the tools and resources needed to help them engage in a meaningful way.
In Spring 2022, we launched a series of virtual workshops in collaboration with the University of Florida Department of Family, Youth and Community Sciences titled: Wellness Wednesdays. Access the recordings and materials here.

We also work closely with our school-based PTA units to ensure schools are providing multiple meaningful opportunities for families to engage.
