In this session, we present the story of three schools that implemented Goals Together for Partnership (GTP), a school-wide family-school partnership model grounded in five research-based Tenets. The goal of GTP was to infuse these Tenets within major aspects of the entire school culture (across general and special education) in which families and educators interact to improve student engagement. We present the GTP model, application examples across all schools, training components, and qualitative individual and focus group research findings regarding the perceptions and experiences of the GTP leadership team. Implications for practice and future research are also discussed.
