Asset No. 6 of 40 | Parent Involvement in Schooling

Support

Parent Involvement in Schooling | Parent(s) are actively involved in helping the child succeed in school.

TAKE ACTION:

  • Get to know your kids’ teachers so you can act as partners in educating your family.
  • If you’re a teacher, post homework assignments on your school’s website so parents can keep track of their child’s deadlines.
  • Car-pool to concerts, games, and plays with other parents to make sure as many parents can attend as possible.
  • Attend open houses, conferences, and other school events whenever possible.  In addition to talking about your child’s progress, make it a point to also have casual, friendly conversations with teachers.
