The Louisiana Department of Education, like so many other agencies, developed a response approach to best support the networks and communities in navigating a challenging and uncertain time due to the global pandemic. Our partnership with Family Engagement Lab is supporting the opportunity to continue to engage with families through a virtual model (FASTalk) so that families understand how children develop and feel equipped to take action when there are concerns. The ability to implement strategies for ongoing touchpoints with families gives us hope that we will continue to monitor the individual needs of all children and provide intentional support, regardless of their educational environment.”
