Student success within a strong school community.

 
   
WHAT IS SOLID FOUNDATION?

Solid Foundation®
is a school-based, team process that helps:
 
  • strengthen family-school connections,
  • engage parents in children's learning, and
  • improve student academic and social learning.

Working with an External Partner (trained coach from the district, state, PIRC, or community group) the school adopts one of three Solid Foundation® paths described below.

With Solid Foundation, the connection between parents and their children's learning is not left to chance.

 
PATH 1: ASSESS / PLAN / IMPLEMENT
Path 1 guides a school team through 10 efficient and effective steps to:
  • assess the school community’s strengths and areas for improvement,
  • develop a 2-year plan,
  • implement the plan with abundant resources,
  • monitor progress,
  • show results in a pre-and post-analysis, and
  • develop another 2-year plan.
 
 
 

Path 1 is directed by the principal and a school team (school improvement team or other school-based team that includes the principal, teacher representatives, parent representatives, and parent facilitator). An External Partner (from a Partner Organization) assists the school team in the process. The Partner Organization may be the school district, a Parent Information Resource Center, State Education Agency, or other organization. External Partners are personnel from the Partner Organization who are trained and certified in the Solid Foundation process.
