SCESD and our partners recognized the value of parent education and voice. With a focus on equity, inclusion and the elevation of parent voice the Parent Advocate will connect parents to agencies and resources to meet needs and support family health, create new and reinvigorate existing parent partnerships already in place regionally, provide parents with access to quality Parent Education, facilitate a regional Parent Advisory Council and support events like Focus Groups and Family Cafes where important information can be shared and gathered.
