Families play a critical role in supporting and guiding learners along their education and career journey, and states should make sure they are involved in decision making and vision setting for CTE. This session will draw on lessons from states’ implementation of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) and Vermont's recent statewide strategic planning to provide strategies for engaging families in CTE. Participants can expect to learn strategies to reach and communicate with families, gather appropriate input and use data to take action.
