Build partnerships with families and the community to promote equity and student success!

When schools, families, and communities collaborate and share responsibility for students' education, they can make a positive impact on student achievement. Based on 25 years of research, this updated edition of a bestseller details a framework that enables school, district, and state leaders to develop more effective programs for family and community involvement.

A team of well-known experts shows how to create Action Teams for Partnerships and train team members in planning and implementing partnership activities to reach school goals. Educational leaders will also learn how teams can mobilize community resources, resolve challenges to reach all families, evaluate program results, and continue to improve plans and practices over time. This practical handbook includes:

  • New examples of successful partnership activities
  • Increased attention to connecting family/community involvement to goals for student success
  • New inventories that define leadership roles
  • A CD-ROM with forms and a PowerPoint presentation for workshops, with Spanish translations of selected reproducibles

The comprehensive third edition of School, Family, and Community Partnerships demonstrates a proven approach to implement and sustain inclusive, goal-oriented programs.
