Be a Parent Champion

 
Designed for Busy Parents

 

Knowing that parents do not have much free time, Tovi C. Scruggs wrote this guide and developed the 4 part workshop in a way that is purposefully succinct.  Parent Champion is designed to motivate and educate parents to be their very best as school-partners. Parents will be inspired to analyze, reflect, and take action in regards to how they co-educate their children by partnering with their child’s school.  With practical strategies and tools, Parent Champion allows parents to take action immediately. As parents, you are the best champions for your child’s success. Being a Parent Champion means prioritizing (making the choice to give highest importance to) hands-on time and strategies for your child and their education.  As a parent, when you prioritize time invested in education, you are modeling your values that education is important and, therefore, championing your child’s academic and life success.

A Must-Have for Parent Organizations and Schools

In addition, this guide and workshop is a must-have for parent organizations and schools everywhere to lead their parents to be more actively and purposefully involved in schools so families can assist educators in the paramount work that cannot be done alone: closing the achievement gap.  For over 50 years, urban youth and youth of color have been at a significant disadvantage in our country’s educational system, with low literacy rates, poor high school graduation rates, and even worse college-going and completion rates. Our schools consistently try to educate our children without significant engagement from parents – and that’s a misstep.  If we are going to change the trajectory of success in our schools, we must bring parents into the equation more actively and intentionally.

 

This Knowledge is a Positive Shift in the Trajectory of Success.

 

The Parent Champion is an empowerment model of support that can be implemented immediately to increase parent engagement and student success.  The focus is to present solid strategies, tools, and support to empower parents to best serve their children to survive, thrive, and achieve in our educational systems.

African-American Parents as Partners in Education

It is critical that we heed the teachings of Parent Champion,
and I encourage parents to unify to demand higher standards
and results from our schools, participate more fully in the
realization of those expectations, serve as contributing authors
of the agendas in our schools, and take more definitive action
in our homes.  Parent Champion shares important aspects
of exactly how you can do that

What Parents & Clients Are Saying

You are amazing!!! I got your book and already finished it! My son is a little mad because I used it to drum up a few discussions with him on school. He kept telling me to stop reading it!!! Ha! I see that as a good sign.  It is very powerful and so needed today. Thank you!

The Courage to Engage
African-American Families

 

Have you heard that educators don’t care about their students? Have you heard that you are not doing your job? Are parents angry and resentful toward your school and teachers?  You are not alone. School’s and school districts all over the country are hearing these same echoing complaints. Perhaps you are being told that your school is biased, not culturally-relevant or that your teachers only take care of the white kids.  

 

How do we choose courage over fear when engaging with African-American families? This session explores our fears in serving families of color, the role of race and white fragility, and the level of willingness in our service to families of color. Particularly African-American families.  From this, we will explore some best practices regarding engaging with African-American families and allocating resources of time, technology and courage to engage them fully.

 

The change begins with you and each member of your staff, individually and as a whole.
