The Red Carpet Treatment - Welcome All Families! Our Red Carpet Treatment tool is our family friendly walk through process. It is a tool to provide schools with the opportunity to meet as a team in order to identify ways in which the school can create a more welcoming environment for families. Parents, including parents of children with disabilities, community members, school board members, educators, and administrators are asked to consider looking at the school through the lenses of all of the families who attend that school. Our guide has five different sections that focus on different aspects of engaging parents and families
GUIDE: CDC’s Parent Engagement: Strategies for Involving Parents in School Health (pdf 2 MB) defines and describes engagement between parents and school staff and identifies specific strategies for all three aspects of parent engagement in schools: connect, engage, and sustain.
GUIDE: CDC’s Promoting Parent Engagement in School Health: A Facilitator’s Guide for Staff Development (pdf 3 MB) helps schools and school groups develop a plan for engaging parents in school health activities. Both of these resources provide the evidence-based framework for Parents for Healthy Schools.
