Meeting Parents Halfway: A Guide for Schools.
Office of Education (DHEW), Washington, DC.
Based on a workshop developed and tested in the Spokane, Washington, School District under Title 1 of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, the Parents Enrich Program (PEP) approach is designed to improve parent teacher attitudes in urban schools by involving parents (primarily the disadvantaged) in direct support of the educational program or in extracurricular activities. Responses to questionnaires and other forms showed that elementary, and secondary teachers, counselors, and principals were indeed gaining parent support as a result of PEP. (Included are survey forms, an agenda for parent teacher meetings, suggestions on school and teacher involvement in community action, lists of activities for parents, conference reporting forms for use by parents, teachers, and students, and results of the Teacher Semantic Differential.)
