Parent Summit: Dozens of families brave the rain to learn about resources

More than 50 parents and guardians came out to Rancho Cordova Elementary School on a rainy Saturday morning recently to learn about District services, ways they can support their child’s learning, and community resources available to them during FCUSD’s first “Parent Summit for Student Success” of the school year.

Attendees were welcomed by Dr. Sarah Koligian, the District’s superintendent, and received a presentation by Cordova High counselors Eric Mejia and Veronica De Alba Cruz on college and career readiness opportunities.

Later, parents took part in a Jeopardy-style trivia game – led by Linda Burkholder, the District’s Family Engagement and Support Services director – so that participants could learn more about the District services available to them.

Earlier in the morning, Rodrigo Baez of the Mexican Consulate addressed attendees about the rights of immigrant families and services available to them in the community.

Parent Summits are open to all FCUSD families. The next will be held Feb. 3, 2018, and more details will be available at a later date. For more information, contact Categorical Programs & Grants at (916) 294-9000 ext. 104630.
