Academic parent-teacher teams: Reorganizing parent-teacher conferences around data

What is this resource? This single web page describes Academic Parent-Teacher Teams (APTTs). APTTs establish powerful connections with families through academically-oriented activities rather than through traditional family engagement activities like potluck dinners and family-fun nights.

Why is it valuable? Schools are consistently looking for ways to improve their connection with parents. They are also seeking ways to enhance family participation in the academic life of their students. APTTs was designed to achieve these goals.
