The purpose of this chapter is to describe how family–school partnerships can support positive parenting practices and promote healthy families. Theoretical underpinnings of family–school partnerships are reviewed, which convey foundational elements for understanding family–school partnerships as well as a framework that can be used to adopt and implement family–school partnership interventions in schools. Next, research support for family–school partnerships is described, research that suggests the impacts of family–school partnerships as well as the mechanisms through which they effect change. The multitiered systems of support framework is invoked as an approach that can guide identifying and implementing relevant family–school partnership interventions in schools. Examples of family–school partnership interventions are described, practical guidance is offered, and key issues in adopting and implementing family–school partnership interventions are provided.
