MVSD Honored with a Partnership District Award

        MVSD earned a 2018 Partnership District Award from the National Network of Partnership Schools (NNPS) at Johns Hopkins University.  The District was recognized for making excellent progress in strengthening and developing its leadership on partnerships and for guiding schools to develop goal-linked programs of family engagement

      The NNPS Award Committee praised MVSD’s approach to “parent trainers” and recognized the family and community engagement programs that show effective teamwork, clear goals, well-designed and implemented plans, and direct facilitation of school based Action Teams for Partnership focused on student success.  MVSD’s leaders were also acknowledged for working to ensure that all families are welcome in all schools, and for guiding school-based partnership teams to develop programs and practices of family and community involvement that help improve student achievement in specific subjects, attendance, behavior, health, postsecondary planning, and on other indicators of success in school.

     In addition to the award, two MVSD family engagement activities, the Family Bi-Literacy program and the Parent Leaders Leading Parents program will be included in the NNPS’s new book of Promising Partnership Practices 2018. 

    “We are extremely grateful to the NNPS for this great honor,” said Angelica Sifuentes Donoso, MVSD’s Director of Family Engagement and Extended Learning.  “In Mountain View we are committed to providing engaging, enriching and empowering programs for our parents and families and we strive to develop effective partnerships which positively impact our students and their educational journey.  We are very fortunate to have dedicated parents, families and community partners who join us in partnership to ensure our students have what they need to succeed and reach for their dreams.”
