Neighbor to Neighbor

Neighbor to Neighbor Strengthening Family and Community Engagement

Strengthening family and community engagement is one of our main goals for the district as reflected in our 2013-2018 Strategic Plan.

Our Neighbor to Neighbor (N2N) program is designed to foster trust, two-way communication, and collaboration among each and every family, community member and stakeholder in Seattle Public Schools. This work includes our ethnically and linguistically diverse families who make up 60 percent of our student population. The N2N program will also help the district to listen to every family including our SPS families of color.

We believe that this approach will ultimately lead to strengthened school family partnerships that contribute to increasing student academic achievement. This kind of intentional and strategic family and community engagement will help us work with our families as equal partners in the education of our children.
