“Many states, districts, and schools struggle with how to execute partnerships and cultivate and sustain positive relationships with families. A common refrain from educators is that they have a strong desire to work with families from diverse backgrounds and cultures, and to develop stronger partnerships of shared responsibility for children’s outcomes between home, school (and community), but that they do not know how to accomplish this.” 
– Harvard Family Research Project

Join us for this conversation which will explore and recognize the importance of developing successful partnerships among families, schools, and communities to support the development, learning, and success of our youth. Our panel will lead a discussion about the challenges and successful strategies to accomplish these goals in NYC. 

  • Barriers and challenges which can impede the development of effective partnerships
  • The conditions and skills needed by parents, teachers, and staff to build and sustain these important relationships and partnerships
  • Successful strategies in NYC for accomplishing goals
