Program Handbook for Parent-School-Community Involvement and Parent Education.
Southwest Educational Development Lab., Austin, TX.
The handbook for the Parent-School-Community Involvement and Parent Education Program is primarily concerned with the home, the school, and the community. It is felt that the relationship among these 3 institutions affects the total development of the child. The main goals are to: (1) develop rapport among migrant parents, school personnel, and community by increasing interpersonal contacts; (2) increase interest and knowledge among migrant parents about the education of their children; (3) involve all school personnel in the development of the best parent-school-community program; (4) enhance the parents' and school personnel's knowledge of agencies and organizations that may improve migrants' socioeconomic status; and (5) promote and involve migrant parents in all types of available educational opportunities. This handbook has been pilot tested at 3 selected Texas Migrant Project schools: McAllen, Robstown, and Hereford. Program developments attempt to make a significant impact on the education of migrant children. It is hoped that this handbook may be utilized by a medium sized local educational agency to initiate positive attitudes, interaction, and understanding among home, school, and community. The plan could either be fulfilled as outlined or expanded or reduced to meet different financial abilities. (FF)
