Recently, Durham’s Transition to Kindergarten (TTK) Initiative was featured in the Harvard Family Research Project! The TTK Initiative, a collaborative project of the Partnership and Durham Public Schools, prepares children, families and schools for a successful entrance into kindergarten from formal pre-school programs or home settings. We are honored to be recognized by such a prestigious organization!
TTK is featured as a resource for other organizations who are hoping to build a Successful Family Engagement System:
“What we know is that a system of family engagement can only be possible through partnerships-between federal and state agencies, across public and private sectors, and among families, schools, and communities. Effective partnerships can result in innovative strategies to reach more families, create meaningful conversations, and influence family engagement practices.”
