Build Effective School-Family Partnerships

The Right Question School-Family Partnership Strategy can be used with all parents to enhance their ability to partner with educators on students’ behalf. It is a simple strategy that can be integrated into your existing workflow – without the need for additional infrastructure, personnel, or funding. The Right Question Strategy sharpens parents’ ability to generate questions and participate effectively in decisions. These skills enhance their ability to support, monitor, and advocate for their children.
