The Family-School Partnership Lab

On 16 July 2009 by the Bureau

The Family-School Partnership Lab is part of the Psychology and Human Development Department, Peabody College, Vanderbilt University in Nashville, USA, and is dedicated to the scientific investigation of the reciprocal relationships among families, schools, and children.

Their website contains information on papers and measures developed during the course of research on the parental involvement process.

While a lot of this information – like many academic reports – is dense and expressed in terms that seem stilted, it’s significant that “One goal of [a recent] three-year research program was effective and helpful communication of study findings to participating schools”.

The Lab achieved this goal by producing reports for participating on its research, offering specific and informed suggestions for enhancing family school relationships.

You’ll find a link to an MS Word example of a report to a school on this web page.

It’s also worth having a look through the rest of the site.
