Action Team for Partnerships (ATP)
Action Team Approach: Each school’s Action Team for Partnerships (ATP) is made up of parents, teachers, administrators and community members. This team meets monthly at each school to develop a One-Year Action Plan for School & Family Partnerships, ensures the activities in the plan happen, and evaluates the activities that take place. They also help to publicize events that involve families and gather ideas for new activities.
Six Types of Involvement:
Parenting, Communicating, Volunteering, Learning at Home, Decision Making, and Collaborating with the Community
What is the National Network? Established at Johns Hopkins University in 1996, the National Network of Partnership Schools (NNPS) invites schools, districts, states, and organizations to join together and use research-based approaches to organize and sustain excellent programs of family and community involvement that will increase student success in school. More information at Johns Hopkins. You can also find more information about the district's ATP program on the district website.
