ESSENTIAL COMPONENTS OF SPL - Family and Community Partnerships
Family and Community Partnerships
When families, schools and communities work together, children are more successful and schools improve. Effective partnerships include parents, families, students, community members and educators.
Indicators of an effective partnership include: 1) sharing information; 2) problem-solving; and 3) celebrating student challenges and successes.
The school must provide written information to the parents addressing the concerns and needs of their student(s). At the CORE level, parent involvement in school decision- making leads to a more positive school climate. At the TARGETED and INTENSIVE levels, parent expertise regarding the individual student is vital and some portions of the intervention may take place at home. Members of the student’s family may provide information about the student’s functions in a variety of settings and strategies that will lead to improved student outcomes.
