Assessing and Evaluating Family–School Collaboration in Schools
From the abstract:
Identifying methods for assessing and evaluating effective family–school collaboration is an essential component of tiered prevention frameworks implemented in schools. Tiered prevention frameworks allow for proactive identification of family and youth needs and offer opportunities to position families as co-equal partners in the development and implementation of interventions and supports for students. The purpose of this chapter is to review the importance and essential features of family–school collaboration within schools along with assessment and evaluation tools used to facilitate family–school collaboration in practice. Considerations for future research and practice focused on approaches and tools for assessing and evaluating family–school collaboration are described.
