This research, along with Dr. Epstein’s 6 Keys to Schools, Family and Community Partnerships, has been incorporated into a framework implemented by the National Network of Partnership Schools (NNPS). In this model, schools, families, and community partners work together to address school improvement goals, increasing positive outcomes for all.

This one hour virtual overview is intended to provide more information about NNPS so district administrators can make an informed decision about implementing the framework.
