Overview

This guide presents useful research findings and best practice information about developing parent and family involvement programs. The first chapter focuses on reporting research findings on parent involvement and highlights pertinent findings on how parent involvement benefits students, parents, teachers, school quality, and program designs. Chapters 2 through 7 each focus on a specific program standard for establishing quality parent and family involvement programs. These are: (1) communicating; (2) parenting; (3) student learning; (4) volunteering; (5) school decision making and advocacy; and (6) collaborating with the community. Chapter 8 focuses on important issues to consider when developing parent involvement programs, including overcoming barriers and knowing how to reach out to key players. Chapter 9 examines three important activities for program development, and chapter 10 summarizes the main ideas in the guide. Four appendixes contain a National PTA position statement on parent and family involvement, parent and faculty survey responses, forms and worksheets for program implementation, and a list of resources.
