Our School Year Program
In 2013, ENHE extended its programming to include a School Year Program that uses a monthly workshop model. The School Year Program provides monthly training to families that will help them support their child’s learning and allows ENHE teachers to follow student progress throughout the year. Workshops are designed to help family members support their child in reaching grade-level reading skills on a long-term basis.
The workshops provide concurrent sessions for family members and students and a joint session at the end of each workshop where the entire family can begin implementing their new skills with the help of workshop leaders. The family sessions focus on how to develop 40 building blocks of healthy development as outlined by the Search Institute in The Developmental Assets®, such as socio-emotional and behavioral skills. The 40 assets are research-based positive qualities that influence young people’s development, helping them to succeed in life. In addition to the monthly workshops, ENHE staff interact regularly with families by phone, e-mail, and home visits. With the permission of family, staff communicate with classroom teachers to monitor student progress.
