Whether or not you're part of the School Community Network, the trainings and support services offered here are designed to give schools a focused approach to building and strengthening family engagement in specific areas. Our support services are soundly rooted in research and best practice and are delivered to your school team through on-site trainings.
Students do best when teachers and parents communicate with each other about expectations and stay in touch regarding student progress, learning habits, social interactions, and attitudes toward school. True communication invites a response, and schools should learn to distinguish the difference between keeping parents informed and communicating with them.
Social capital gained through supportive relationships in the school community drives student success.
At the center of these relationships are the connections among the student, the student’s teacher(s), and the student’s families that form a network of people united in purpose.
When families learn systems for monitoring and guiding their children’s out-of-school time, the child does better in school. Schools that train families to reinforce school learning at home find that students are more motivated to learn.
