We've begun to reach out with families more as we've leveraged connections with local schools and community organizations to build new connections. We've been connecting via phone, and text and video calling apps.

We always make sure to greet parents by name and form relationships with them. Something that we don’t do as well is what we’re experiencing now which is keeping in touch and knowing the needs of families and how to be there for them in this time of being distant.

From a parent side of things, the direct talk is what I prefer but second is surveys that are mobile friendly, maybe parents who fill it out get their name put into a drawing for a gift card!
Chalese Floyd
01:11:23
incentivizing the completion of surveys is a great idea
