ABOUT

Parents' Night Out NOLA is a one-week popup event series providing parents and caregivers with clear answers, actionable information, and advocacy tools on navigating systems in education.

Every morning you'll get customized resources, online trainings, expert advice and more on the day's topic. After work hours, meet experts in the day's featured issue during a special happy hour. Enjoy a cocktail, chat with fellow parents, and get straight answers on the issues that matter to your family.

What do we mean by "Navigating Systems"?
Picking a school, completing the OneApp, working with administrators: when it comes to kids' education, families are faced with a maze of choices. Navigating the complex constellation of agencies, organizations, and forms can be overwhelming. Families are all too often just given a list of services without any clear explanation of what they are. There may be a wide range of resources out there, but parents deserve a clear understanding of how to access them and what to do when they get there.

Why is navigating systems effectively important?
There is no "one size fits all" in education. Every young person comes to the classroom with a unique combination of strengths, challenges, needs and opportunities. Parents' Night Out provides both information and direction on what resources are available, and how to make the most of their supports.

The end result? A feedback loop of success. As families learn to do more with the system, the system can do more for them — ultimately resulting in increased family action and voice in education policy and practice.
