    Academic Parent Teacher Teams

    Academic Parent Teacher Teams is a program developed by Dr. Maria Paredes, formerly with the Creighton School District in Phoenix, Arizona. Dr. Paredes noticed that parents did not fully understand how their students were doing academically or how to support them.  She added three additional 75 minute meetings along with the parent-teacher conferences. At each of these meetings, parents are building better parent-teacher communication and relationships as well as building a community relationship within the classroom. Teachers review students’ foundational grade level skills, share individualized academic data, model and practice take home activities related to their students’ grade level, and set 60-day SMART goals for their students.APTT is known to increase family engagement, increases teacher-parent relationships, builds parents capacity to understand their students’ grade level learning goals by explaining and reviewing class level academic data as well as improve student academic performance. This program has been highlighted nationally.

    • According to Washoe County School District’s research on APTT, the findings suggest that there is a relationship between parental APTT attendance and their children’s test scores. Attendance at one APTT session does not relate to students’ MAP scores, but there is a relationship between APTT attendance and students’ test scores when parents attend at least two APTT sessions. Compared to parents who attend only one session (or do not attend any at all), students who have a parent attend at least two sessions experienced an increase in both ELA and math 2019 MAP spring percentile.

    Equipos Académicos de Padres y Maestros

    Equipos Académicos de Padres y Maestros es un programa desarrollado por la Dra. Maria Paredes, anteriormente con el Distrito Escolar Creighton en Phoenix, Arizona. La Dra. Paredes notó que los padres no entendían completamente cómo sus estudiantes estaban rindiendo académicamente o cómo apoyarlos. Añadió tres reuniones adicionales de 75 minutos junto con las conferencias de padres y maestros. En cada una de estas reuniones, los padres están construyendo una mejor comunicación y relaciones entre padres y maestros, así como construyendo una relación comunitaria dentro del salón de clases. Los profesores revisan las habilidades de nivel de grado fundamental de los estudiantes, comparten datos académicos individualizados, modelan y practican actividades para llevar a casa relacionadas con el nivel de grado de sus alumnos y establecen metas SMART de 60 días para sus estudiantes. APTT es conocido por aumentar la participación familiar, aumenta las relaciones entre maestros y padres, desarrolla la capacidad de los padres para entender los objetivos de aprendizaje de nivel de grado de sus estudiantes explicando y revisando los datos académicos de nivel de clase, así como mejorar el rendimiento académico de los estudiantes. Este programa ha sido destacado a nivel nacional.

    Las escuelas enlistadas implementaron el programa de Equipos Académicos de Padres y Maestros (APTT) en el año escolar 2019-2020:

    Lo que las familias dicen en WCSD sobre APTT:
