Family Action Team

The Partnership introduced Family Action Teams to each one of their schools. These teams are site-based and include parents, teachers, community partners, students, and school administrators. The multi-stakeholder groups work in five areas:
  1. getting more parents engaged and involved at school,
  2. increasing communication between school and home,
  3. engaging parents in student learning
  4. making decisions at the school level, and
  5. establishing shared accountability for achieving school goals.
The Partnership team plays a key role in training and coaching school-based Family Action Teams and providing supports for successful team development. They also build the capacity of our teachers to engage families beyond the classroom when they lead Family Action Teams.
