Ohio’s Parent-Teacher Partnerships Model
The Parent-Teacher Partnership Model brings together a small group of family members and school staff a few times per year to discuss such topics as respect, communication, equality, and supporting student learning using a set of 8 suggested modules, which are listed below. Families and schools implement this model for an opportunity for honest and open, two-way communication towards school improvement and family well-being. Parents and teachers co-facilitate meetings, to model to the group that families are equal partners. This model is meant to connect with the Ohio Improvement Process and other models of school improvement being implemented in Ohio schools.
