Collaborating with Communities and Families to Ensure Success

Schools thrive when communities, families, and teachers work together, as genuine partners, to maximize student learning inside and outside of school.

Academic Parent-Teacher Teams (APTT) is a research-based model for family engagement that supplements and elevates the efforts of traditional parent conferences by expanding opportunities for families and teachers to collaborate. APTT helps you engage families in meaningful partnerships focused on students’ learning and achievement.


  • Transforms traditional parent engagement activities into high-impact events that improve student learning
  • Improves the quality of parent-teacher communication, helping improve student achievement
  • Helps teachers gain the confidence and skills necessary to work with families as true partners in their students’ academic success

When you implement the APTT model for family engagement, teachers, administrators, and parents work together as an engaged, knowledgeable academic team to support student success.
