Families are essential partners in providing a high-quality education for every student. National PTA’s National Standards for Family-School Partnerships set the bar for how schools and parents should work together to support student success. The updated Standards provide critical guidance and best practices for strong partnerships that will make a real impact for all students, families and schools. National PTA, alongside other leading education organizations, will host a virtual townhall Nov. 17 at 7 p.m. EST in conjunction with National Parent Involvement Month. The townhall will be streamed live on National PTA’s Facebook page and Twitter and YouTube accounts.
