As more schools are beginning to construct school wide Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports, questions are being raised about how can schools engage parents in this exciting change. An article co-authored by Howard Muscott (AAF/ PBIS) shares that an important feature of PBIS is the evidence based practice of engaging families as partners in schooling. Creating Home-School Partnerships, asks schools "to think deeply abut how they support and facilitate parenting, learning at home, communicating, volunteering, participating in decision making, and collaborating with community." The article looks at ways schools can foster family engagement in developing, implementing, and sustaining PBIS.
