Family Friendly Schools

The Family Friendly Schools Learning Network is a peer learning group of 60 Kentucky schools. These schools were nominated by members of the Kentucky Collaborative for Families and Schools based on their commitment to improving family engagement.

The purpose of the Network is to improve family and school partnerships in Kentucky schools by building the capacity of school leadership to understand and implement more effective family engagement best practices.

Administrators from the schools will participate in this experience from September 1st  2021 through May 2023. Schools have a menu of trainings and services to choose from and will participate in surveys each spring for continuous improvement. The learning experience is a combination of group learning sessions, small group coaching sessions and increased awareness and access to resources and services that increase family engagement.

In addition to the Prichard Committee’s work these schools are also supported by staff from Berea Partners for Education, Daviess County School District, Kentucky Department of Education, Learning Grove, and National Center for Families Learning.

Prichard Committee hopes to onboard new Learning Network Schools in January 2024. For more information or to connect with one of these schools, please contact Brooke Gill @ or visit
