National Network of Partnership Schools

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

  1. Action Team for Partnership
  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. By becoming a member of NNPS, you receive one Handbook.

Ohio NNPS Network

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 and Ashland City Schools in their implementation of family and community engagement strategies through the NNPS model. The Ohio NNPS Model Network and SST Region 7 are excited to welcome Crestview Local Schools and Madison Local Schools as they prepare to join the Network and advance family-school-community partnerships in their districts.

Both Mansfield City Schools and Ashland City Schools have been active making connections with families in their community. Check out these photos from Ashland County's Back-2-School Celebration that took place this August.

Mansfield City School's NNPS work has garnered national attention. Sherman Elementary School's Action Team for Partnership created Literacy Learning Bags to help all students work on literacy goals in the School Improvement Plan.
