Partners For Success helps students and families overcome barriers to school success. Partners For Success family support workers in schools partner with educators and families to implement effective home-based strategies that increase parental involvement, improve academic performance and connect families to community resources.

According to a 2015 study by the University of Minnesota’s Center for Applied Research and Educational Improvement (CAREI), for every dollar invested in Partners For Success, a conservative estimate of $5.00 is returned in social benefits, which includes personal earnings gains, higher tax revenues, public health savings, and crime reduction. The return on investment could be more than $14.00 with a more aggressive interpretation of the data.  Read more about it here.

A prior CAREI evaluation reported that 88 percent of students in the Partners For Success program made progress toward, met, or exceeded their reading growth targets.
