HOME WORKS! The Teacher Home Visit Program places teachers and other educators in the homes of their students in order to improve the relationship and communication among teachers, parents/guardians/families, and students. Home visits are viewed by many as the third leg of a three-legged educational stool that includes principals and teachers. Without parental involvement, most students will not succeed academically. Home visits by teachers and other school personnel get parents/guardians/families involved in their child's education — and let families know how much teachers care. Home visits give teachers the insights they need to help their students succeed academically and to help families feel connected so they can be a support to their children.
