Livingtree Family Engagement Webinars

Our mission at Livingtree is to improve student outcomes by helping classrooms, schools, and districts connect with their communities and those that can make a difference for students. That's why one of Livingtree's core values is Family Engagement.

A number of school districts use Livingtree's Engage platform to consolidate communications so that families are connected to their child's teacher, school, and district all in one place. But, just like any technology, we know that it is only a vehicle, not a driver of family engagement. While we try to create as many tools and features as we can to help engage families, we know that achieving family engagement through technology relies on the teachers and administrators using it.

That's why we look to experts and practitioners to provide resources that can help schools enhance family engagement. Our family engagement webinars are a completely free resource open to anyone looking to learn more. So join us in the future, or watch some of our past recordings below!

Want to attend our family engagement webinars, ask questions live, and get next-day access to recordings?

Our webinar recordings archive is updated monthly, but webinar registrants get a link to the recording emailed to them the next day - so stay in the know! Simply subscribe to our Family Engagement email list, and we'll email you upcoming webinar registration information, news and updates, family engagement resources, and things we're doing here at Livingtree!
