    Family Partnerships at Seattle Public Schools

    Family partnerships is a capacity building department whose purpose is to support the district and schools to effectively build strong family partnerships and advocacy to improve student success and school culture through 3 key bodies of work: coaching, consulting, and professional development.

    We work to serve

    • Parent and Family Groups
    • School Leaders Community Groups
    • Community-based Organizations
    • District Staff

    Through the combined work drawn from the landscape analysis that was completed in 2016 and the community Family Engagement Task Force, and district policies, we rest our work on the foundation of four pillars.

    Four Pillars of Family Engagement

    • Share Power and Responsibility
    • Facilitating Positive Interactions
    • Welcoming Environments
    • Two-Way Communication
