The Austin Council of PTA was one of three councils from across the US to be awarded a grant to look at whole-child learning and transformative family engagement.  This initiative is in partnership with the Center of Family Engagement at National PTA via the Chan Zuckerberg Foundation.

The initiative which was organized by ACPTA with assistance from the Austin ISD Parent Engagement Support Office (PESO), Families as Partners, and NACER in the NorthEast HS vertical team, were a set of listening sessions of caregivers and parents of Austin ISD students mostly situated in the eastern crescent of Austin.  These listening groups which were done in late August of 2019 were focused on family engagement and of the whole child.  Attached is what our families are saying and how as stakeholders, we can collaborate towards our student’s success.
