Getting Parents Involved in Schools | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it
Parent involvement continues to challenge practitioners engaged in school reform despite being a required component of many school improvement initiatives-from Title I Schoolwide Programs to federally mandated school improvement plans. The benefits of parent involvement are clear: A growing body of research shows that successful parent involvement improves not only student behavior and attendance but also positively affects student achievement.

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

This is a great article. I would add do not let the bureaucrats and technocrats get involved.

Sharrock's curator insight, March 4, 11:55 AM

excerpt: "Of course, the use of any strategy must be tailored to the school's population. If families don't have reliable access to the Internet, e-mail won't work. A phone message in English won't communicate much to parents who speak only Spanish. The bottom line for schools is to communicate using strategies that convey what is important in a way that can be heard by parents and families and invites them to respond."

Love this infographic. Clear to the point. I think I might use it in the classroom to help the kids understand.
