One-Year Action Plan for Partnerships
This planning tool asks for detailed information on the activities that the
Action Team for Partnerships (ATP) will implement for all of the
Six Types of Involvement
to reach specific school improvement goals. There are two versions of the One-Year Action Plan for Partnerships that a school's ATP may use or adapt.
- Form G (Goals)
- The four-page plan, designed for ATPs organized by school improvement
goal, focuses on the activities for family and community involvement
linked to school improvement goals. Four goals are selected: two academic
goals, one behavioral goal, and one goal to promote a welcoming school
- Form T (Types)
- The six-page plan, designed for ATPs organized by type of involvement,
focuses on activities for each of the Six Types of Involvement.
Both formats of the One-Year Action Plan for Partnerships require ATP
members to list the dates, grade levels involved, preparations needed,
persons in charge and assisting, and evaluation tools to gauge results
of the planned activities.
Every year, the ATP should obtain reactions to and ideas for the One-Year
Action Plan for Partnerships from the School Improvement Team, PTA/PTO,
faculty, parents, and others.
Templates for the One-Year Action Plan for Partnerships are in the NNPS Handbook
