    At these 41 schools, the FEATs are composed of families, principals,vice principals, teachers, support staff, and community members. Seattle Public Schools understands that School Family Partnerships are vital for student academic achievement. Developing a successful School Family Partnerships model requires a deep understanding of each school's unique needs, knowledge of national best practices, intentional planning, and a District-wide commitment to change.

    Seattle Public Schools takes the following elements into consideration when developing the School Family Partnerships Model:

    • understanding of each site’s family engagement needs, and
    • using a research-based framework for defining specific strategies taken to address these needs.

    Planning for successful School Family Partnerships requires selecting programs, activities and strategies that are effective, targeted and appropriate to the school and families.

    We would like to thank our friends and colleagues from the Family Support Worker Program. Your collaborative partnership has been important in making the work of the FEATs a success in our schools.
