Developing good educator-family relationships seems like a daunting task. After all, teachers can have anywhere from 25-75 students across their classes, and the ratio for guidance counselors and administrators could be as high as 500:1. But engaging families and creating true partnerships with them results in better outcomes for everyone.
Research shows that strong relationships with families optimize student progress. Luckily, family involvement is an essential element of Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) that helps parents and caregivers support their children’s academic journey.
