The Parent Teacher Home Visit program is launching the fourth Annual Spring Home Visit Week, a district-wide campaign to empower families with knowledge and tools to support their students’ academic success. Schools around the city will be participating in Home Visit Kickoff Week August 31st to September 16th by connecting with families through home visits.  Home Visits have been proven to be one of the most high-impact strategies for improving student outcomes, such as attendance and reading comprehension, as well as building collaboration and communication between the home and school learning environments.
