Modern Strategies for Family Engagement

Greater family engagement leads to higher academic outcomes, fewer discipline issues, and deeper peer social connections. Join us on this journey and build your repertoire of family engagement strategies. The WEA Academy is partnering with the internationally renowned nonprofit, FAST (Families and Schools Together).


Through a mix of engaging virtual and in-person workshops in the fall of 2022 we will explore proven strategies that create a welcoming environment for families of all racial, cultural, linguistic, and socioeconomic backgrounds.
