Parent Teacher Home Visiting
PTHV is a completely voluntary program for educators in Saint Paul. Before their first home visit, educators who elect to participate in PTHV are trained by both educators and parents about how to respectfully and authentically engage with families. A key aspect of this training is ensuring that families and educators are meeting each other as equal partners in their student’s education. All educators participating in PTHV must complete home visits to at least three families throughout the first school year, and document and track visits. Participants attend a debrief session, allowing the program coordinator to assess the needs of both the home visitors and the families they are visiting.
