Families are important members of the school's community.
- When schools and families work together toward a common goal of helping all children and young people to be successful, it is much more likely to happen.
- Families have valuable insights and information about how their children learn best and what help they need.
- School personnel can help families support their children and young people at home in learning and developing academic, social-emotional and behavioural skills.
- PBL schools find various ways to update families on a regular basis about their activities, lessons, projects and celebrations. Schools actively communicate with families so they understand and support the PBL process.
- Families benefit from learning how to use similar strategies at home for teaching and supporting their children's social and behaviour skills.
- PBL schools encourage family members to volunteer in their schools and to participate on their PBL leadership teams.
The School a to z website is a useful resource for parents and carers at school information or orientation sessions and transition programs.
