: The impact of the Family Check-Up (FCU) on family-school engagement was tested in a randomized, controlled trial. Participants were primary caregivers of 321 children.

Caregivers in the FCU condition outperformed caregivers in the school-as-usual condition on family-school engagement at home. In addition to outcomes, implementation of the FCU during kindergarten was examined...

Many students who demonstrate serious social-behavioral problems do so across their multiple life contexts (homes, schools, community). In many cases, the specific manifestation ...
