    I am a family and operations coordinator in Camden, NJ. We are a urban school district. I would love to attend so I can learn how to get and keep my parents engaged.

    We would love for you to join us, Tracey! In addition to applying for the Innovation Grant mentioned above, you might want to look into using district or school-based funding, ESSA funds (including Title I, Migrant, Indian Education, etc.), or funding through community agencies in New Jersey.
