• diagram Families and communities expect a school to put the child at the center and focus of everything it does and to respect every child and family.

    At a partnership school:
    • Each child and family are treated special and included in a "family-like environment."
    • Goals are developed that focus on building relationships that promote success for every child.
    • Children are the responsibility of families, schools, and communities. 
    • Parent involvement is enhanced through communication, volunteering, learning at home, and decision-making opportunities.
