We’re trying out something new with this Question of the Week.

Education Lab has partnered with the Public Insight Network (PIN), a division of American Public Media, in an effort to better engage our readers. PIN’s industry-leading online platform enables journalists to connect directly with potential sources in an effort to produce more meaningful coverage.

Following Sunday’s story about parent engagement, we’re asking for examples of how families and schools are working together in the Puget Sound region. We’ll be publishing a selection of responses later, with the hope that parents and schools will be inspired by what they read and consider taking action in their own communities.

Fill out the form above to get the conversation going. Got questions or additional thoughts to share? Send an email to educationlab@seattletimes.com.
