Understanding the mechanics of a soaring bird can seem overwhelming and even next to impossible! Yet, every day the mechanics all come together-the air flow around the wings is just right and we are privy to witness one the most beautiful events: birds soaring effortlessly. Join us on our journey of integrating Systemic Family Engagement; applying a system through partnerships that allows children to soar effortlessly in times when it seems next to impossible. We will share video from parents, liaisons and administrators, offer budget ideas, and share data regarding student achievement. This presentation at the 2012 National Title I Conference features Jenni Brasington, Maria Paredes, and Kimberly Tobey.
