2021 Virtual Family Engagement Symposium

2021 Virtual Family Engagement Symposium

The Parent Educational Advocacy Training Center (PEATC), in collaboration with the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE), is pleased to announce our 2021 Family Engagement Symposium entitled “Together We Win and Students Soar.”

This year’s Symposium will continue to create synergy and robust systems of support for all parents and caregivers of school-aged children (PreK-12), especially children receiving special education services, new and experienced educators, administrators, Title 1 coordinators, and community partners around authentic collaborative engagement for student success.

The 2021 Virtual Family Engagement Symposium is a day of connecting virtually and professional learning. This year’s Symposium will feature several live, interactive and engaging presentations, with a special emphasis on building engagement for underserved families in Virginia. Our nationally known speakers will bring attendees concrete, innovative strategies and methods to help families and schools change the trajectory of how they engage one another to ensure ALL students soar.


This event will take place March 6, 2021, beginning at 9a.m. Several attendee raffle prizes will be awarded throughout that day.

A recorded version of the Symposium will be available to registrants from March 8 – March 22, 2021.
