School Councils—Pandemic-Style

By Nancy Angevine-Sands

Nancy Angevine-Sands is a passionate advocate for deeper engagement in our schools. It’s much more than Parent Engagement. It’s about engaging the entire family! And it’s about Nancy’s ongoing exploration of “Why Family Engagement Matters.”

In this episode, parent leaders Sophie Luxton, Nadia Judunath and Anna Sidiropoulos speak with Nancy about the challenges faced by their School Councils after the Covid shutdown. Their work supporting families hit roadblocks as avenues of communication closed down and stresses increased. Now, wishing to continue their drive for authentic family engagement, they are looking forward to a new school year with determination and hope.
