The purpose of this study is to examine and understand the school-parents-community partnerships created by teachers who received the Queen Rania Award for Excellence in Education. This study analyzes the applications of the 28 teachers who received the Award in 2007 and addresses three questions: How do teachers who received the Queen Rania Award communicate with parents and the broader community? What kinds of voluntary work do teachers who received the Award pursue inside and outside the school? And, How do teachers who received the Award encourage students to be more aware of social and community issues and then motivate students to be involved in the community? The findings of the study show that teachers connect with parents and the community in five ways: (1) communicating with parents, (2) involving parents in the learning process, (3) involving the community in the school, (4) pursuing volunteer projects, and (5) involving students in the community. Each of these categories are divided into several themes that represent ways to connect with parents and the community. (Contains 1 table and 2 endnotes.)
