This research synthesis is the first in a series that will examine key issues in the field of family and community connections with schools. The issues highlighted in this synthesis represent critical areas of work in family and community connections with schools where clarification, agreement, and further development are needed, as well as promising new directions that are emerging. By continuing to strengthen the research in the field we can help ensure that schools, families, and communities can come together to produce positive outcomes. After reviewing and examining a body of literature that included more than 160 publications, four key issues emerged: (1) Clarifying the Concept of Family and Community Connections with Schools; (2) Measuring the Outcomes of Family and Community Connections with Schools; (3) Advancing the Research Base for Family and Community Connections with Schools; and (4) Critical Areas for Research in Family and Community Connections with Schools. (Individuals who contributed to this report include: Joan Buttram, Deborah Donnelly, Marilyn Fowler, Margaret Myers, and Lacy Wood. Contains 5 footnotes.)
