    Objectives:
     
    The program has nine Family School Partners that serve over 200 families, including seventy-five Spanish-speaking families.  Each family School Partner visits parents in their home to:
    • Provide parents with age-appropriate activties they can do with their child
    • Identify needs for early intervention
    • Connect parents with community agencies and provide information on community events
    • Assist parents in finding preschool opportunities for their child
    • Create a link between school and home before the child enters school

    The Family School Partner encourages families to read daily to their children and provides a lending library throughout the year.  Children also receive gift books at the first visit, at Christmas and during the summer.
