30 Where do we start in our work of building effective family-school partnerships?


32 Essential Core Beliefs Core Belief One All parents have dreams for their children and want the best for them. “…I believe that all parents hold big expectations for the role that schools will play in the life chances of their children. They all harbor a large wish list of dreams and aspirations for their youngsters. All families care deeply about their children’s education and hope that their progeny will be happier, more productive, and more successful than they have been in their lives.” (Lightfoot, 2003)

33 Core Belief Two All parents have the capacity to support their children's learning.

34 Core Belief Three Parents and school staff should be equal partners.

35 Core Belief Four The responsibility for building and sustaining partnerships between school, home, and community rests primarily with school staff, especially school leaders.


37 The various stakeholders (families, district/school leaders and staff) have not had the opportunity to develop the knowledge and skills, in other words, the capacity to engage in effective partnerships. Example: Title One, section 1118 requirement for families to be engaged family engagement policy development for schools and districts.
