Family and Community

Families are important members of the school communities. Schools and families must work together toward the common goal of helping all children to be successful. Families have valuable insights and information about how their children learn best and what types of environmental supports are helpful to them.

School personnel can help families know how to support their children at home in learning and growing in both academic and social/behavioral skills. RTI2-B schools find various ways to update families on a regular basis about their activities, lessons, projects and celebrations. They encourage family members to volunteer in the schools and to serve on their RTI2-B teams. If your children’s schools are implementing RTI2-B, look for information in school newsletters, websites, handbooks and weekly folders.
