Review Quotes




School, Family, and Community Partnerships is one of our go-to resources. It takes us beyond the why of partnerships and gets to the how. It has everything you need to guide school-based Action Teams for Partnerships--from training modules to downloadable documents.

As a state organization supporting school districts and schools in establishing and sustaining effective family-school partnership programs, the School, Family, and Community Partnerships is our go-to resource. Everything we need to prepare staff, facilitate meetings, and evaluate practices, programs, and progress is right at our fingertips.

This Handbook is the gold standard for family and community partnerships. It makes clear connections between theory and practice. Epstein and her colleagues' decades of research and experiences are organized into a simple-to-navigate and comprehensive resource. This book will guide both novice and experienced practitioners toward authentic goal-based actions that lead to measurable outcomes.
