Partnership Outreach Projects

The National Network of Partnership Schools (NNPS) Outreach project is a collaborative act with the Center of Excellence to highlight the “Promising Practices” being implemented by the National Network of Partnership Schools. NNPS is focused on improving the classroom, school, community, and family climate for students of poverty. The recipients of the outreach Project must provide opportunities for parents and community volunteers to help improve student behavior, academic performance and their overall sense of safety in their community. The projects should instill in the students, parents, teachers, volunteers and community that working together they can help raise tomorrow’s leaders. The recipients of the National Network of Partnership Schools Outreach Projects are expected to present their results at the NNPS End of the Year Celebration.

In its role as a partner with Johns Hopkins University’s National Network of Partnership Schools, the Center annually funds school-based initiatives that support the efforts of P–12 teachers to cultivate goal-oriented family and community partnerships.   A competitive application process that includes initial support for proposal development from the Center is used by the Center to identify viable projects for funding.  Ongoing support throughout project implementation and assessment in an effort to engage investigators in authentic action research.
