Academic Parent-Teacher Teams (APTT)

Description of importance of building capacity of school staff and parents

APTT helps schools develop strong partnerships with families and form networks between teacher and parent, parent and parent, and child and parent that supports student growth and achievement inside and outside of school. It supplements the efforts of traditional parent conferences by expanding opportunities for families and teachers to collaborate and communicate. The model consists of three parent meetings to share grade-level information, tools, and strategies that families can apply at home to accelerate student learning. These meetings give families opportunities to collaborate about grade level information and home practices. The teacher also holds an individual session with each student and family to provide individualized support around the grade level information.

*Parent meeting dates and times are determined by individual schools.
