Many of us are familiar with SEDL’s Dual Capacity Building Framework. This webinar provides concrete examples and tools you can use to implement the framework to encourage schools, districts and communities to support their family engagement strategies. Then take it a step further by learning how to help schools consider what culturally responsive practices need to be included when working with a diverse community.
