FHSD Schools Featured in New National Network of Partnership Schools Resource
Posted on 05/11/2012
Several schools in the Francis Howell School District (FHSD) have established promising practices and are featured in a new resource developed by the Johns Hopkins University National Network of Partnership Schools (NNPS). The NNPS Sampler includes promising practices that link family and community involvement in goal-linked activities that contribute to student learning and development.
Each Sampler includes a description of the importance of family and community involvement for the selected academic or behavioral goal and a summary of related research. Each booklet features ten activities that have been reported in Promising Partnership Practices over the years and were chosen as best practices by Johns Hopkins University for this resource.
FHSD had activities in five of the nine NNPS Samplers and of the five Samplers, FHSD had seven best practices published. Published Promising Practices include:
Family and Community Involvement in Preschools
Early Childhood Meadows Parkway – Digging With Dad
Early Childhood Hackmann Road – Wellness Fair
