Family to Family Videos about Choosing a School

Kaleena’s School Choice Story

We listened to families talk about how they chose a school for their child, and here is what we learned: Families are all unique in how they approach choosing a school and working with their child’s potential school!

In the video above, Kaleena shares that in 2020-21, remote learning was the best option for her kids and her family. And part of the reason it worked out well was that the school reached out to her to share ideas for keeping her children challenged and growing. Her story demonstrates the power of routine, 2-way communication between home and school to support student growth during the school year.
