Community1 Community1 Presentation Transcript

  • Start with a Kick-Off in August to begin to partner with families to make the transition smoother for all students.  Welcoming the East families will be the beginning of the partnership between school and home and become the gateway for other parent involvement activities. When families feel welcome, valued and supported by the school they are more likely to work together with the school in supporting their child's education.  Student, family, and community collaboration in transition planning has been linked to positive outcomes including higher graduation rates (Michaels & Ferrara, 2005).   Kick-Off
