Get Ready for our 2019 Best Practices Forum
Our Best Practices Forum will take place on
April 9, 2019
(please note that the forum will be an evening program this year) at Georgetown Visitation Preparatory School in Washington, D.C. and is open to all parents, administrators, faculty, and staff from PCW member schools.
This year's topic is
Promoting Student Well-Being.
Later this month, we will send a letter and questionnaire to Heads of Schools and Parent Association Presidents asking each member school to submit information on their own school-specific best practices on the topic. School submissions will be due in March 2019. Information collected from each member school will be organized into an e-binder and posted on our website subsequent to the forum.
Best Practices e-binders from prior years remain a valuable resource and can be accessed
Please mark your calendar and encourage your school to contribute to the Best Practices e-binder!
