FAMILY ENGAGEMENT SESSIONS

FAMILY ENGAGEMENT SESSIONS

The College 1st Family Engagement Sessions are conducted on-campus or virtually and have been designed to focus on providing parents with the knowledge, guidance, and tools needed to support and actively engage them in the education of their children.

College 1st has developed a dynamic bilingual family engagement literacy component with engaging activities to prepare parents with the knowledge and skills they need to help their children achieve college and career success. These sessions guide students and parents to work collaboratively with schools in the college readiness process. We design a meaningful support system to create a college-going culture at home. Each of these sessions informs students and parents on the House Bill 5 (HB5) framework that includes endorsements and graduation plans, as well as the jargon and significance of the ACT and SAT exams. This Family Engagement Session is now offered virtually allowing parents to connect from home or work.

Numerous research studies have shown that family engagement in education leads to improved student academic achievement, boosts school attendance, and reduces dropout rates. The College 1st Family Engagement Sessions have been designed to focus on providing parents with the knowledge, guidance, and tools needed to support their children in their future college and career plans. Concurrent sessions in English and Spanish are offered at each implementation site. We conduct these engaging family sessions using proven strategies from a newly designed Family Engagement Model complying with HB5 state requirements
