Multi-Tiered Family, School, and Community Partnering Webinar Recordings
These archived webinars are divided into segments or chapters for easier access and viewing. The recordings are designed to be viewed with accompanying downloadable resources so that the information can be studied and applied. All tools/resources referenced in recording segments are available for download in the archived webinars. It is strongly recommended that the tools be downloaded before beginning the content segments so that the materials can be studied with the appropriate prompt in the presentation. All materials are provided with the intention that they can be adapted to a specific site or situation, applying research to practice. One possible use for these recordings is for a school team to view the content together and to discuss the information, thinking about potential application(s) to the school’s implementation of family, school, and community partnering.
For more instructional tips related to the purpose and process of viewing these segments, please view the brief tutorial video prior to viewing the content segments.

Family, School, and Community Partnering (FSCP) Support Network
The Office of Learning Supports is pleased to offer a family, school, and community partnering (FSCP) network to support stakeholders who have participated in a CDE face-to-face or online training or stakeholders who have expressed an interest in partnering. The goal is to provide updated resources and information through a periodic electronic mailing and request "two-way" sharing of successes, stories, and solutions.
