Working together lays the foundation for strong schools and communities. Inviting families and community members to be involved in schools increases attendance, improves behavior and promotes higher academic achievement.

This resource gives educators an overview on how family-school-community partnerships improve student learning. Included in this resource are sample letters, ideas, and tips to help you engage family and community members as volunteers, strengthen skills at home, and reach out to less-engaged parents.
