Overview

According to the national Network of Partnership Schools, for parent involvement to flourish, it must be meaningfully integrated into a school's programs and community. The network identified two very important things that schools can use to guide their efforts. It says schools can:
(1) Help families with parenting and child-rearing skills; and (2) Encourage families to be involved in learning activities at home; You will find that these strategies are at the core of this handbook which can be used to help parents learn how to appropriately engage their children.
"When schools, families, and community groups work together to support learning, children tend to do better in school, stay in school longer, and like school more." That's the conclusion of a recent report from the Southwest Educational Development Laboratory. The report, a synthesis of research on parent involvement over the past decade, goes on to find that, regardless of family income or background, "students with involved parents are more likely to:
Earn higher grades and test scores, and enroll in higher level programs;
Be promoted pass their classes, and earn credits;
Attend school regularly;
Have better social skills, show improved behavior, and adapt well to school; and Graduate and go on to postsecondary education."
(Henderson & Mapp, 2002)
