Discover how educators face the ever-growing challenge of a diverse school population by visiting the students and their families at home. This 15-minute DVD shows how the staff of a large suburban middle school take the right steps to ensure a visitation program increases attendance, parent participation, and academic achievement:
- Establishing the purpose for school visits and deciding who will visit and how often.
- Contacting families and making parents feel comfortable.
- Focusing on positive intentions and following up after visitations.
See an actual home visit and hear reactions from parents, students, teachers, and administrators.
