“In this masterful book, Kyle Palmer moves beyond talking about the importance of parental engagement to making the clear case that it is essential for school and student growth. Palmer provides both the foundation for and the strategies to support this work. A must-read for PLCs seeking to move their relationship with parents beyond involvement to engagement.”

Tom Hierck, author and educational presenter

“We are a Model PLC at Work school, but we have not considered parentships in relation to our PLC transformation. After reading Parentships in a PLC at Work®, I am motivated to make parentships a focus as we move into the next school year.”

Kevin Carroll, principal, Sparks High School, Nevada

“Kyle Palmer’s book is the next step in the right work of building a PLC. It is phenomenal for helping school leaders design a process for creating a foundation to incorporate families to bridge the gap between school and home.”

Chad Luhman, assistant principal, Lexington Traditional

“Kyle Palmer’s book Parentships in a PLC at Work® is not only timely but also timeless. This book is coming out at a time when parent involvement and parental engagement has unfortunately deteriorated into parental enragement. . . . If you want to think strategically or extensively about how you could engage or re-engage your school’s parent community in a more proactive and positive manner, this is the book you need to read!”
