All children can learn and be successful in school when students, parents, teachers, administrators, policy makers, and community members all form partnerships to reach that goal, Everyone involved in educating our students must realize that learning begins with infancy and continues throughout adulthood.

Pre-K through 12 teachers, parents, child care providers, school administrators, school boards, volunteers, businesses, higher education, health care providers, community service agencies, and policy makers must all make a full commitment and engage in collaborative efforts in order for all students to achieve academic success. Educators must provide continuous high-quality instruction for every student. Knowledgeable and skilled educators who develop effective programs, continually assess progress, and provide powerful intervention are essential. Information and training sessions should be provided for family members and community members to facilitate involvement in student learning.

Schools should also be supported by school administrators, board members, and business and community partners who facilitate the development and implementation of effective programs in schools and in the community. Providing community based adult education programs and parenting programs can result in increased parental involvement in schools and the education of their children.

In summary, educators, family members, and members of the community all play a valuable role in the academic success of all students. Therefore, school-family-community partnerships are necessary and essential.
