Parents as Partners in Education is an easy to follow guide for delivering fifteen plain language workshops that help parents and guardians, including those with literacy and language barriers, to better support their children with their schooling. Parents as Partners in Education has received national and international recognition. It helps you to reach those parents who most need it.
All of our Ottawa Catholic schools and their school councils have access to these materials. Schools are permitted to reproduce the workshop pamphlets, handouts and overheads (free of charge) and may also reproduce entire sections of the resources to deliver workshops to interested parents in their school community. If you would like more information, please contact the Literacy & Basic Skills Program of our Continuing & Community Education Department >>
These program documentation resources provide school principals and teachers with the tools they need to deliver the workshops to parents/guardians in their school community. Information such as how to implement the program, guidance on facilitation skills, tested outreach strategies, learning outcomes and other information to ensure successful workshop delivery.
The Parents as Partners in Education Guide is a product of the Ottawa Catholic School Board, funded by the National Literacy Secretariat, Human Resources and Skills Development Canada.
