ESC-20 provides resources and training opportunities for parents and famillies of students served within federal programs, including Title I, Title III, and Special Education.

Family/Community Engagement

Important Session Information:

This conversational training targets parents, family members, and loved ones with students in K-12 schools to empower them in their ability to help in the mission to prevent targeted school violence. This raw and eye opening training addresses those factors about which parents must be aware that may signal a child is at risk for engaging in violence. Strategies as to how to have those challenging conversations with our children will be explored. Parents will be confronted with the pitfalls of overvaluation and labeling our youth as “special” to prevent the fostering of unhealthy esteem and narcissism that contributes to poor coping skills, entitlement, bullying, and in extreme cases, violence. Moreover, the training aims to dispel myths about what contributes to school violence and the hysteria of these incredibly rare events being perceived as an epidemic. Parents and families will leave feeling more equipped to engage threat assessment and violence prevention strategies in the home, the Mecca of first line defense for prevention.
