Increasing Student Achievement, One Visit at a Time 

What is a home visit?

Home visits are meetings between school staff and families focused on building positive relationships. They are:

  • 20-30 minutes long
  • Voluntary for both staff and families
  • Hosted somewhere outside of school (home, park, library, etc.)
  • Based around the question – what are your hopes and dreams for your child?

Why home visits?

Home visits are a research-based approach correlated with improvements in

  • Student achievement
  • Attendance
  • Behavior 

About Parent Teacher Home Visits

Too often, a home visit from a teacher means one thing to a family: trouble. But with the Parent Teacher Home Visit (PTHV) Program, the goal is to start by building a strong and positive relationship between the family and the school.

The visits begin with the teacher asking about the family’s hopes and dreams for their child. By involving the parents and families, we create a better chance of success for students.
