Home Visit Project
The Home Visit Project grew out of a fellowship with educators who said family engagement would be the single greatest lever to support their efforts to sucessfully educate their students. But not just any family engagement, engagement that builds authentic relationships.
The TEN (Texas Educator Network) launched a Home Visit Project pilot in 2015-16 at 10 campuses, with 46 educators who conducted 328 home visits.
As of now the project has trained over 1,500 teachers and staff in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex.
Through the Home Visit Project, we have found:
- Attendance is up
- Students are more engaged in class
- Behavior has improved, discipline referrals have decreased
- Teachers report greater job satisfaction
- Families feel more connected to schools
