"It's all here-everything you need to start, sustain, and grow an effective, research-based partnership program. With the addition of a CD-ROM, the essential tools are even more accessible, portable, and adaptable to the challenges and opportunities facing our schools." -- Joe Munnich, Family and Community Involvement Coordinator "The link between successful partnership programs and student achievement is supported by research. This book provides the tools you need to establish and sustain partnerships, both on the district and school levels. It's an invaluable resource for anyone who wants to organize an outstanding partnership program to enhance student success." -- Melissa T. McQuarrie, Director of Community Relations "Useful for state leaders as well as districts and schools. It provides a research-based yet practical blueprint for organizing sustainable partnership programs to support student learning. We use the Handbook to provide training to school teams, parent leaders, school boards, superintendents, and their cabinets across California." -- Jeana Preston, Director, California Parent Center "This practical handbook offers a wealth of resources not only for those who are starting to organize their work, but also for those who are sustaining their programs of school, family, and community partnerships. You can make the guidelines fit your district's needs." -- Lorraine Landon, Director, Parent Education Center Coordinator "This is the 'bible' of parent engagement literature. The Handbook gives step-by-step examples of strategic planning for partnership programs and practices that lead to student success." -- Dave Guzman, Director, Parent Engagement "The third edition is loaded with practical tools, researched-based strategies, and helpful examples for anyone wanting to implement or improve goal-linked programs of family and community involvement. A standout feature is the new CD-ROM, which provides everything needed for successful workshops-a great time-saver!" -- Jean West Lewis, Family and Community Outreach Specialist
