About This Webinar:

Many educational decisions are made based on the trust built between professional partnerships within schools, military installations, and the local community. Military students are best supported when these collaborative relationships exist before there are challenges. This session assists key collaborators (e.g., school liaisons, EFMP FSP, teachers) in learning how to create trusting professional partnerships so that students and families have successful school experiences.
