Educational Engagement

Educational engagement speaks to the many opportunities school personnel have to engage with not only with one another but also with business, community, and parents. Engaging with one or more of these entities can create successful education opportunities for all students, as well as opportunities to solve broader community issues. Learn ways in which educators are engaging with each other, their community, and how engagement impacts the classroom.
