        Tools for Family

        Family-School Partnership Resources

                        The Family Engagement Tool's two-year cycle provides a simple, repeatable process for evaluating current family engagement practices. Because                 school communities continually change, periodic examination of current practices and their outcomes provides insights for teams to make                             informed decisions to alter strategies that better meet the needs of your changing school community.

        This video for parents introduces parents to the use of problem-solving and how it may affect their child in the context of school-wide implementation of a multi-tiered system of supports, often still referred to as RtI.
