Criterios de colaboración de MMSD con la comunidad y sus familias

Research continues to point to a positive and convincing relationship between family involvement and student success, regardless of race/ethnicity, class, or parents’ level of education. When families are involved in their children’s learning both at home and at school, children do better in school. Modeled with permission after the National PTA Standards for Family-School Partnerships, MMSD Family, Youth and Community Engagement Standards (FYCE) standards provide guidance on how to effectively partner with families and community for student success.
