A primary factor in student achievement and overall well-being, parents (or guardians) play an integral part in their children’s lives. For this reason, the California Department of Education’s Migrant Education Office (MEO), in collaboration with WestEd, created the Parent Engagement Module Series for parents to develop their capacity to support their children at school and at home. The MEO’s State Service Delivery Plan, a framework for migrant education service delivery, identifies the need to support and increase parent and family engagement. These seven parent modules were developed to provide parents and family with information and strategies to address important topics such as the use of positive discipline to support child development, ways to raise self-confident children, bullying at school, and more. All of the modules are intended to be presented by a facilitator but can also be viewed independently by parents.
