The Center on School, Family, and Community Partnerships conducts research on the nature and effects of family and community involvement, and through the National Network of Partnership Schools (NNPS) at Johns Hopkins University, guides schools, districts, and states to implement research-based partnership programs.
Using a framework of six types of involvement and an action team approach, every elementary, middle, and high school can strengthen and sustain goal-linked partnerships that contribute to student success in school. When families and community partners are involved in productive ways, more students follow clear paths to high school graduation and postsecondary education and training. NNPS provides members with professional development, tools, publications, and on-going guidance to build capacity for leadership on partnerships.
