Families as Partners Manual

The FAP program is based on the Dual Capacity Model* of collaborative engagement. In this model, the FAP program outcomes are accomplished by engaging parents in meaningful collaborative work with each campus’ staff and administration. The tasks that were undertaken were to be driven foremost by parents, supported by staff and administration.

Families as Partners (FAP) is an Austin ISD initiative funded by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation with the goal of creating sustainable and effective school-family partnerships for academic success. The initiative is grounded in the principle that authentic engagement flourishes when families and faculty build trusting relationships and see each other as equal partners.
