In Maplewood Richmond Height, Missouri, the Teacher Home Visit Program has become a crucial component of the district's success. At the end of the first semester of the 2010-11 school year, discipline referrals were down 45 percent, and parent attendance at each school's first open house was up by almost 20 percent. Attendance is nudging up as well. Teachers new to the program attend two three-hour training sessions offered by the Kalish Foundation and are paid for the training session as well as for the home visits. The Teacher Home Visit Program has moved the district to the next level in terms of serving families and educating students. (Contains 1 endnote.)
