Resources List to Support Families During COVID-19 School Closures

Professional Development Resources

Natural Leaders families are engaged in new learning and are empowered by the professional development they receive. This new learning is often then shared with their school and district communities to ensure that more families have the tools they need to build relationships, create events families want, and plan for the future – all to ensure their students can be successful in and out of the classroom.

It is also important that school and district staff have the tools they need to support and champion families. Their professional development is an important thread in the fabric of family engagement.
