Your partnership with your school is critical during distance learning. When your child experiences most schooling at home rather than in a classroom, your family's relationship with the school changes. You may have a greater window into what and how your child is learning, and you are likely to take a role that you rarely or never play during in-person schooling. And, you're likely to perform your usual roles in new ways.

Your family is up to the task. This new school year provides an opportunity for you to forge a stronger partnership with your school – the kind that can help you and the school make distance learning work for your child and all students. This guide provides a starting point to use when creating intentional partnerships in this new setting.
