Developing effective Parent Committees ensures that all parents have a significant decision-making experience with support from program leadership and other decision makers, a process that supports school readiness. This institute aligns with two of OHS’ Parent, Family and Community Engagement Framework’s family engagement outcomes, Families as Advocates and Leaders and Family Connections to Peers and Community. Parents and program staff will have the opportunity to review, revise, and renew their commitment to implementing parent-driven Parent Committees and to address relevant program practices for today’s parents.

Thoughtfully planned Parent Committees in partnership with parents helps ensure successful, meaningful leadership experiences. Every aspect of this institute will emphasize the importance of parents individualizing the Parent Committee to meet their needs.

Learning Outcomes

  • To explore staff perceptions of the Parent Committee and the specific tasks and roles parents play in the Parent Committee that incorporates leadership, advocacy, and networking.

  • To develop creative strategies to better engage families in the Parent Committee to ensure each parent has a significant decision-making experience throughout the program.

  • To gain a better understanding of the importance of the relationship between school readiness and the Parent Committee and parent transitions.

  • To increase the knowledge of relevant regulations, guidelines, and best practices relative to the Parent Committee.
