how we help

We understand that education at its best is a partnership between schools and families.

Getting kids to class is no new issue in education. Our team works with district partners and stakeholders to rethink their approach to children and families. We work with our partners to create school environments that invite parents to add value alongside their children. We understand that when parents feel welcome at school, kids will follow!

school system change

Changing one classroom at a time is ineffective. To truly engage parents a school system must be committed to change as a whole. Red Apple uses our unique F.A.C.E. rubric to help our school partners evaluate where they are, determine next steps, and work towards the warm and welcoming environment that helps parents to show up authentically. We know this process isn’t easy. Our coaches work hand in hand with partners to plan and carry out change one step at a time.

Parent growth

Our ultimate goal is to work towards parent empowerment. We believe and research supports the idea that when parents are oriented and understand how to advocate for themselves and their children at school, the school system as a whole benefits. Children grow and teachers are able to show up daily and do the work they love knowing that parents will support them at home. If we want to improve student outcomes in any capacity we must begin by working directly with their first teachers…their parents.
