Evidence-Based Interventions Using Home-School Collaboration
Cox, Diane D.
School Psychology Quarterly, v20 n4 p473-497 Win 2005
Home-school collaboration refers to the relationship between families and schools where parents and educators work together to promote the academic and social development of children. Eighteen empirical studies of home-school collaboration interventions that also measured a school-based outcome were identified and evaluated according to guidelines outlined by the American Psychological Association's Division 16 Task Force on Evidence-Based Interventions in School Psychology. Based on the results of coding, it is concluded that home-school collaboration interventions are effective in helping achieve desired school outcomes for children, including changes in academic performance and school-related behavior. The most effective interventions are those where parents and school personnel work together to implement interventions utilizing a two-way exchange of information (e.g., parent-teacher action research teams), and those involving communication between school and home (e.g., daily report cards, school-to-home notes). Methodological strengths and limitations of home-school collaboration studies, as well as recommendations for future research, are discussed.
