Parent Teacher Home Visit (PTHV) Program

  • PTHV Family

    Overview

    Parent Teacher Home Visits (PTHV) is a high-impact family engagement strategy designed to build trusting home-school partnerships centered on shared hopes and dreams. Recent studies reveal that PTHV’s model for relational home visits strengthens relationships, shifts mindsets, improves teaching, and bolsters student outcomes. These studies also reiterate how critically important implementation fidelity is to realizing the full potential that the model offers.

    The Parent Teacher Home Visits model was co-created by parents and educators using the community organizing principles of shared leadership and recognizing the inherent dignity in all people. The success of PTHV relies on training teachers and staff to develop meaningful relationships with families of their students, starting with voluntary home visits. These are short, 30- to 40-minute conversations, in which educators listen, ask about hopes and dreams, and make observations that they can take back to their classrooms to improve instruction for the learner.
