The CABE i3 2INSPIRE Project Family, School, & Community Engagement program has completed its second year! Our annual progress and evaluation reports, as well as ourconversations with school and district personnel, indicate that we are building a really strong foundation for our collaborative work with all 10 schools. As in Year 1, the i3 project activities focused on building school capacity to engage parents through our parent leadership development program and professional development for school leaders and teachers. It takes all of us to succeed in any endeavor and we have learned that engaging parents is a developmental process. The P2I-i3 project includes ten participating schools in three districts: Garden Grove USD, Santa Ana USD and Ontario- Montclair School District.
In its first two years, Project 2INSPIRE has served a total of 654 parents: 235 at Ontario-Montclair School District (OMSD), 283 at Santa Ana Unified School District (SAUSD) and 136 at Garden Grove Unified School District (GGUSD). Of that total, P2I-i3 has certified 397 parents at the Mastery Level and 106 parents at the Expert Level.
