Co-sponsored by Parent Teacher Home Visits Twenty-five years ago, parent and community organizers joined forces with educators to pilot a relational home visit model, Parent Teacher Home Visits (PTHV), at eight Sacramento, California, schools in an effort to counter deeply held mistrust and disrupt the cycle of blame between home and school. Success and significant media attention fueled rapid growth and an organization was born. In the intervening years, PTHV expanded to more than 700 communities across 28 states and the District of Columbia. Looking forward, the organization hopes to leverage its core values and recent research findings to further advance its vision of fundamentally changing what it means to teach and learn for every student, family and educator through the transformative power of trusting relationships. In this webinar, we will hear from speakers in Sacramento, Denver and Stamford about the roots, successes and future of PTHV, as well as the expansive resources the organization has to offer to communities interested in implementing this model. Presenters: Don Diehl, Gina Martinez-Keddy, and Yesenia Ramirez, Parent Teacher Home Visits; and others TBD.
