CCNA has three main programs: Parent Engagement Workshops, the Community Forum, and Reach and Rise for Excellence (RARE). Expand each section below for more details.
PARENT ENGAGEMENT WORKSHOPS
Parent Engagement Workshops empower parents to advocate to teachers and school officials on behalf of their children. Our unique program prepares Parent Outreach Workers to be responsible for and successful at building relationships with parents, identifying their needs and ensuring that they attend our workshops. Our workshops have consistently increased parent participation in their child’s education which promotes academic improvement and success for children. Parents of regularly participating students engage in activities that encourage their child’s educational and vocational aspirations. The program also empowers parents to discuss learning strategies and approaches to parenting that support school success. Parents work together in support of one another to address critical issues facing their family circumstances. CCNA parenting professionals coach parents and provide referrals to appropriate City resources as needed.
allow key partners to discuss critical issues and develop strategies to help improve the academic performance of Alexandria’s school students. The forums increase dialogue and collaboration in the community.
