Learning Compacts Between Schools and Families

School and home can often be worlds apart. In a recent issue of ASCD Express, we looked at the types of outreach that draw family strengths and influence into the school community in positive ways and unite these two spheres of a student's life.

This video discusses Step 5: Outreach to Parents in the Connecticut Department of Education's 10-step model for engaging families in learning objectives by creating family-school compacts around the school's academic and behavioral goals. To view all 10 videos for each step in this process and download resources related to implementing family–school compacts in your school or district, visit the School Parent Compact website.
