Seattle Public Schools (SPS) families are invited to join North Seattle College’s Family Connectors University (FCU) class, a family-focused online course designed to help parents support their child’s learning and growth.  

In partnership with North Seattle College and SPS Family Partnerships Department, topics include:

  • Navigating the SPS School System and advocating for your child
  • Social Emotional Learning ideas for home
  • Becoming a supportive partner at your school
  • Helping your child with ‘big emotions’
  • Supporting your child with reading and math
  • Talking to children about race, racism, and antiracist actions
  • Staying motivated in school
  • Executive Function skills

Take this course in real-time or attend offline at a time that works for you. Check out an informational video about FCU here.

Participants report that this year’s pandemic-informed curriculum has been immensely helpful to families during remote learning:

The Family Connectors University class was a wealth of practical ideas, and definitely worth the time investment!”

“…the conversations about self-care, supporting our kids’ social emotional growth, dealing with “big feelings” and recommendations on supporting reading and math were fantastic.”

“Implementing just a few of these ideas brought the pressure level in our ‘locked-down’ household from a 9 to a 2.”

“I loved the chance to have one hour to myself each week to get ideas for helping my child and talk with other parents.”

The course is facilitated by NSC Parent Education Instructor Lea Evans, SPS Family Partnerships Coordinator Asosa Sailiai, and special guest speakers.

The cost for the 2-unit class is $39.42 and some scholarships are available. Email Asosa Sailiai to enroll or find out more information at amsailiai@seattleschools.org or the instructor Lea Evans at lea.evans@seattlecolleges.edu.
