School, Family, and Community Partnerships: Your Handbook for Action
 
 

Strengthen programs of family and community engagement to promote equity and increase student success!  

When schools, families, and communities collaborate and share responsibility for students′ education, more students succeed in school. Based on 30 years of research and fieldwork, the fourth edition of the bestseller School, Family, and Community Partnerships: Your Handbook for Action, presents tools and guidelines to help develop more effective and more equitable programs of family and community engagement. 

Written by a team of well-known experts, it provides a theory and framework of six types of involvement for action; up-to-date research on school, family, and community collaboration; and new materials for professional development and on-going technical assistance. Readers also will find: 

  • Examples of best practices on the six types of involvement from preschools, and elementary, middle, and high schools
  • Checklists, templates, and evaluations to plan goal-linked partnership programs and assess progress 
  • CD-ROM with slides and notes for two presentations: A new awareness session to orient colleagues on the major components of a research-based partnership program, and a full One-Day Team Training Workshop to prepare school teams to develop their partnership programs. (Also available at https://resources.corwin.com/partnershipshandbook)

As a foundational text, this handbook demonstrates a proven approach to implement and sustain inclusive, goal-linked programs of partnership.  It shows how a good partnership program is an essential component of good school organization and school improvement for student success. This book will help every district and all schools strengthen and continually improve their programs of family and community engagement.
