Jansorn, Natalie Rodriguez, Ed.; Salinas, Karen Clark, Ed.
This publication highlights 93 exemplary practices of school, family, and community partnerships selected from members of the National Network of Partnerships Schools at Johns Hopkins University, Maryland. Network member sites represent 18 states and 2 Canadian provinces. The publication highlights six types of practices: parenting (e.g., parent workshops and grandparent gatherings); communicating (e.g., coffees with the principal and family-school picnic supper); volunteering (e.g., drop-in mathematics tutoring clinics and environmental day in the park); learning at home (e.g., family science night and Latino literacy programs); decision making (e.g., lunch for parent team members and technology committee); and collaborating with the community (e.g., after school tutoring for ninth graders and school beautification project). The publication includes lists of activities to help schools reach improvement goals, activities by school level, and activities that support multiple types of school and community involvement. The publication also includes examples of district level leadership (e.g., community bulletin boards and monthly leadership meetings); organization level leadership (e.g., mother-daughter college preparation program and parent-to-parent interviews); and state level leadership (e.g., first day of school celebrations and school improvement plan training.)
