Parents Teaming for Literary Success (PTLS) is a different approach to the parent-teacher relationship that increases coordinated efforts to develop and facilitate an authentic, culturally relevant model for parent engagement, empowerment and community with the ultimate goal of improving child literacy through joint engagement between parents and teachers.
