HOW ARE PARENTS INVOLVED IN SCHOOLS

  • Communicating, or working to educate families about their child’s progress and school services and providing opportunities for parents to communicate with the school;


  • Volunteering, which ranges from offering opportunities for parents to visit their child’s school to finding ways to recruit and train them to work in the school or classroom;


  • Learning at home, in which schools and educators share ideas to promote at-home learning through high expectations and strategies so parents can monitor and help with homework.


  • Decision-making, in which schools include families as partners in school organizations, advisory panels, and similar committees.


  • Community collaboration, a two-way outreach strategy in which community or business groups are involved in education and schools encourage family participation in the community.
