This volume will address major frameworks for understanding family involvement and government support of family involvement projects in the initial chapters. The following six chapters present a theoretical base for understanding school, family, and community partnerships and research supporting promising practices. Included within each chapter are examples of research in action, focusing on specific interactive activities or programs designed to bring families and schools together. Such promising practices are organized into chapters dealing with twoway homeschool communication, family literacy projects, schoolsite parent centers, parent school collaborative governance, and familyschool education programs spanning infancy through young adulthood. The monograph concludes with a chapter on teacher preparation for work with family, school, and community partnership issues. Besides their research expertise, each author brings a unique background as classroom teacher, parent, and community social advocate to their writing. Individually, most of us have spent our early professional years within the classroom, acquiring the value of connecting home with school for the benefit of the children. As parents and grandparents, we have advocated for parental interests within the school. As community advocates, we strive for collaborative communication across groups who serve children and their families. We invite you to share our passion for working with families and community groups within our schools.
