National Network of Partnership Schools

The National Network of Partnership Schools (NNPS) is a research-based approach to improving family-school-community partnerships to amplify student success in school. Established at John Hopkins University in 1996, the NNPS mode consists of four essential elements: 

 1. Action Teams for Partnerships

 2. Framework of Six Types of Involvement

 3. One-Year Action Plan for Partnership

 4. Program Evaluation

This Handbook for Action that accompanies the NNPS model is a great place to learn about research on family engagement and how to systematically embed family engagement in education program operations.

Ohio's National Network of Partnership Schools Model Network is made up of state leaders, coaches, and district and school staff implementing the NNPS model.

SST Region 7 engages in this work by supporting Mansfield City Schools in their implementation of family and community engagement strategies through the NNPS model. These schools establish Action Teams for Partnership that include a school's principal, teachers, family members, and students. This team attends trainings and gets feedback from SST 7 as they write and implement one-year Action Plans for Partnership focused on supporting school improvement collaboratively.
