Kelly Harvell | Family Engagement Coordinator | Title I Department Wake County Schools

I support schools in their planning of effectively partnering with families focused on student achievement. I also am able to bring the research and best practices to schools, to empower them to make the best decisions for their school community. When it comes to innovation, I’ll have to highlight some of the schools I work with for this question. They are the innovators! We have seen schools pull up a seat at the table for families, all families, to the school improvement conversation, through efforts such as town halls and shared visioning. We are also making sure that sharing data very explicitly with families is happening, instead of a one-size fits all approach around learning strategies family can use to help their child.
