National Standards Implementation Guide

The National Standards for Family-School Partnerships Implementation Guide, a tool for empowering people to work together with an end goal of building family-school partnerships and student success.



Literacy, and especially early literacy, is critical for student success. Parents and families are key to the development of children’s literacy. From birth on, the role of family can help to determine a child’s path in this area. Early intervention and activities (talking and singing to babies; reading to toddlers and young children) are important, and the role of families in literacy does not end when their child enters school. There is a continuous partnership between family, school and community that keeps this crucial area of learning growing. No matter what the literacy level of the parents and families, their interest, involvement, concern and caring make a difference in the literacy skills of their children.
