Across the past 20 years, Turning the Page (TTP) has developed a system that uniquely engages public school parents as educators through resource-rich programming maximizing parents' involvement in their children's learning. TTP partners with schools and families in Wards 7 and 8 in Washington, DC, and in the community of North Lawndale in Chicago, IL.
With schools closed and families at home, Turning the Page is putting our long history and experience of successfully engaging parents to use, and are supporting parents and families through virtual family engagement programming. We have been culling, creating, and making accessible to families in our programs a series of at-home learning strategies, resources and experiences that can enhance at-home learning through many different technology platforms. We are now virtually bringing together our array of community partners to make these learning experiences as engaging, useful, and fun as possible, for parents and their children. We look forward to keeping you updated on our progress and are grateful to be able to contribute during this unprecedented crisis.
Turning the Page is confident that with hard work and continued cooperation, we as a community can improve the education of public school students by engaging their parents and families as active and effective participants in their children’s education. Through resource-rich programming, trust in our relationships and those we support, and a dedicated, detail-oriented staff, we look forward to building on our continued successes in the communities we serve.
