Seven Essentials of Whole-School Improvement
Boston Public Schools has woven expectations for parent engagement into their school improvement process, as can be seen in the framework presented in Seven Essentials of Whole-School Improvement. Family and community is listed as one of seven core essentials in their improvement process. Each core essential is defined by three categories of information:
  • Expectations for schools
  • Evidence in the classroom and around the school
  • Expectations for central administrators
Evidence of parental involvement is also expected in the shared leadership core essential.
