Overview

This research-based framework of six types of involvement guides state and district leaders, school principals, teachers, parents, and community partners to form Action Teams for Partnerships -- dynamic groups that plan, implement, evaluate, and continually improve family and community involvement for student success.

Epstein and her colleagues offer even more tools and strategies -- innovations tested for more than fifteen years that are being used by leaders in schools, districts, and state departments of education across the country to create partnership programs that support school improvement goals.
