Four Things NYC Schools Are Doing

Attending a workshop with Ms. Hall of NYC Schools — who reflects on the question  “How is NYC helping “Moms.”

1. Family Listening Sessions – started by meetings with groups of 20 parents whose voices are least heard.  Sitting with the families you want to reach, and listening to families stories, understanding what they need in their schools and how to reach them.

2. Parent Teacher Conference Framework – “IT ALL STARTS WITH THE RELATIONSHIP WITH THE CLASSROOM TEACHER.”  NYC is working to develop a parent-teacher conference framework that helps families.

3. Toolkit for Families to map their Communities (find information about the best schools, after school programs, child care centers).  The goals it to provide equal access to information and opportunities to all families.

4.  Tools to help families understand the common core standards and resources to help families help their children
