About the eBook

—William Ruff, Assistant Professor

"An excellent book. Each chapter opens with relevant research and presents suggestions for practical applications. I would buy this book for a task force or professional learning community."

Build a school climate that promotes the development of successful school partnerships!

Research has shown that strong principal leadership is critical to developing effective school partnerships that include diverse school, family and community members. This book provides administrators with a clear road map for initiating partnership programs that are goal-focused, equitable, and sustainable.

In this research-based resource, the authors highlight the work of principals who have cultivated successful partnerships across many settings to show other school leaders how they can develop the necessary supportive school cultures. Examining the administrator′s role in the success and quality of home-school partnerships and student outcomes, this guidebook:

  • Synthesizes research on principal leadership, school and community partnerships, and urban education reform
  • Discusses the role of fathers in children′s learning and working with families that live in poverty, are linguistically diverse, or have children with disabilities
  • Offers practical recommendations for evaluating and refining partnership programs to ensure they are linked with student achievement goals
