Family Engagement and Community Partnerships help to build a more vibrant school environment. These valuable practices broaden the scope of support given to students by employing significant input and involvement from families and other partners.

This volume features these important initiatives by individuals and teams engaged in cultivating more robust relationships across our school communities. Authors present innovative practices which include building relationships through family home visits; empowering families with academic parent-teacher teams; offering restorative circles and peer mediation in a trauma-informed school; setting the stage for student directed learning through musical entrepreneurship; improving early literacy achievement for at-risk elementary students; and helping parents from diverse backgrounds to overcome barriers and become more involved in their child’s education.
