Listen: Building Family Engagement through Donations; It’s Possible with Lindsay Whitley of Guilford County Schools


You’ve heard the cliche “it takes a village,” but this North Carolina school is assembling the village in an innovative way. In this episode of the EdTech Podcast, we spoke to Lindsay Whitley, Director of the Guilford Parent Academy in Guilford County Schools, North Carolina and discussed how his team is using grant money, corporate donations and donations in-kind to fund the use of technology to increase parental involvement.

“We don’t always have the funding to do everything we want to do, but we’re being innovative and partnering with the community to receive support and in-kind donations to build a high-quality parent-family engagement division,” said Whitley.
