It takes a vil­lage to raise a child is an African proverb which means that it takes an en­tire com­mu­nity of dif­fer­ent peo­ple in­ter­act­ing with chil­dren in or­der for a child to ex­pe­ri­ence and grow in a safe en­vi­ron­ment

A well col­lab­o­ra­tion of the Com­mu­nity and the schools com­ple­ment and re­in­forces val­ues, cul­ture and the learn­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties that schools can pro­vide for their stu­dents. In other words, all of us — teach­ers, staff par­ents, busi­ness, non profit, Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment Units , ser­vice clubs and the like — work­ing to­gether, truly make a dif­fer­ence in the lives of our stu­dents.

But mak­ing Com­mu­nity peo­ple ef­fec­tively in­volve in the school is one of the cru­cial load a teacher needs to deal with , but with a try it will surely make a tremen­dous re­sults. Here are some in­struc­tion how to win com­mu­nity stake­hold­ers do their way to school.

Cre­ate a wel­com­ing school cli­mate.

Pro­vide com­mu­nity peo­ple in­for­ma­tion re­lated to child de­vel­op­ment and cre­at­ing sup­port­ive learn­ing en­vi­ron­ments.

Es­tab­lish ef­fec­tive rap­port , an open com­mu­ni­ca­tion , Use so­cial me­dia to cre­ate gen­uine en­gage­ment

Strengthen fam­i­lies’ knowl­edge and skills to sup­port and ex­tend their chil­dren’s learn­ing at home and in the com­mu­nity.

En­gage com­mu­nity peo­ple in school plan­ning, lead­er­ship and mean­ing­ful vol­un­teer op­por­tu­ni­ties. En­gage with civic groups

Make it a point to en­gage with civic or­ga­ni­za­tion such as , lo­cal gov­ern­ment Unit, lo­cal busi­ness clubs such as the Ro­tary and the Ki­wa­nis, and recre­ational sports leagues in town. De­vel­op­ing part­ner­ships with these groups will help to so­lid­ify your school’s cul­tural role in the com­mu­nity.
