The teacher page features a two-week family engagement plan, complete with daily messages to parents. We’re also offering free virtual PDs and PLCs, led by teachers, for teachers. These will prepare teachers to lead Family-Educator Learning Accelerators, or FELAs, which are 5-10 week cycles during which teachers and parents share a game plan to help children reach reading goals. Can you think of a better way to support learning amidst school closures?

Springboard Collaborative webinars for educators
FELA: A framework that provide explicit tools and strategies to support at-home reading growth.
In April and May, we hosted and recorded series of 4 live webinars where we show you HOW to help families support their children towards continued reading growth while learning at home. Participants will learn about our FELA approach. FELA (Family Educator Learning Accelerator) is a straightforward team approach to helping students make progress in their learning during a set amount of time. Every FELA has a beginning, middle, and end with clear, actionable steps for the family educator team. This introduction will help walk you through the steps.
Webinar recordings coming soon
