Academic Parent-Teacher Teams (APTT)

Academic Parent-Teacher Teams (APTT) is a family engagement model, designed by Dr. Maria Paredes, that strengthens teacher-family relationships by focusing on student academic growth and achievement. The APTT Model elevates the efforts of traditional parent-teacher conferences by inviting all families of the same classroom teacher to meet together rather than individually. ​Learn about Georgia's APTT program by clicking here. ​​
