This guide introduces the six standards for family-school partnerships developed by the National Parent Teacher Association. The standards, welcoming all families, communicating, supporting student success, speaking up for every child, sharing power, and community collaboration, are described in detail along with vignettes of local success stories. For each of the six standards the guide also presents action steps for parent leaders and school staff, along with additional resources to help school communities meet each one. The guide also includes an impact survey that can be distributed to parents as well as detailed rubrics to assess progress on each standard.
