Parent Leaders and Advocates

Through the Family and Community Engagement Network, IEL works with local communities to develop and implement capacity-building activities that strengthen the key roles parents and families play in their child's educational success: decision-maker and supporter of learning; school/community partner; and advocate for school/community improvement.
