Supporting Families Who Support Learning

More than ever, families are called to support their children’s learning at home.  Parents are taking on new roles to help their children find success in remote instruction, navigate the challenging times we're all living through, and just get through everyday life.  Across Summit ESC’s departments of Curriculum and Instruction, Student Services, and State Support Team – Region 8, our educational consultants have come together to offer short videos with practical strategies that parents and caregivers can use immediately when helping their children in learning and in life.
