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.
