Friends and Partners:

Like many of you at this challenging time, all of us at NNPS are working every day to develop and gather resources that will help you strengthen and sustain your program of school, family, and community partnerships.

The COVID-19 crisis put SCHOOL AND FAMILY PARTNERSHIPS at the top of everyone’s “do list” in new and imperative ways. Check the "NEWS" sidebar for information, publications, and resources from NNPS throughout the 2022-23 school year.

Celebrate the NNPS 25th Anniversary with us!

Stay well and stay in touch,

All at NNPS

Established at Johns Hopkins University in 1996, NNPS invites schools, districts, states, and organizations to join together and use research-based approaches to organize and sustain excellent programs of family and community involvement that will increase student success in school.

“Based on more than three decades of research on parental involvement, family engagement, and community partnerships, NNPS’s tools, guidelines, and action team approach may be used by all elementary, middle, and high schools to increase involvement and improve student learning and development,” explains Dr. Joyce L. Epstein, Founder and Director of NNPS. NNPS also guides district leaders to help their schools develop goal-oriented programs of family involvement and community connections, and to meet Title I requirements for parent involvement. In addition, NNPS assists state departments of education and organizations to develop policies and take actions that will support districts and schools in strengthening their partnership programs.

Researchers and facilitators at the Center on School, Family, and Community Partnerships at Johns Hopkins University School of Education work with the members of NNPS to increase knowledge of new concepts and strategies that will improve policy and practice; provide professional development; share best practices of family and community engagement; and recognize excellent partnership programs at the school, district, organization, and state levels.

This website provides NNPS members with information, research results, and ideas for action from the NNPS staff and members across the country. The site also informs prospective members about NNPS approaches, benefits, and services.
