The purpose of this qualitative study is to research what the different perspectives are on how to enhance literacy at the home along with what home literacy strategies parents, teachers, and principals would like for the school or district to provide. The goal of this research study is to help inform ways to support my students’ parents in closing the school to home literacy gap. This study was completed through interviews with parents, teachers, and a principal in a suburban school district. Through my research, I have found some gaps in the strategies and programs the parents would like and those that the district and school already provide and would like to provide.
