Handbook for a Parent-School-Community Involvement Program.
Southwest Educational Development Lab., Austin, TX.
This handbook, the production of which was funded under the 1965 Elementary Secondary Education Act Title I, offers techniques and suggestions for developing a well organized parental involvement program with emphasis on the migrant Mexican American parent. The team approach, which includes the principal, teacher, parent, visiting, community aide, and others, is focused upon. Some activities discussed are parent teacher conferences, parental, workshops, advisory committees, home visits, and parent education activities. A parental involvement program is viewed as a partnership arrangement among parents, school, and community. The program's main goals and objectives are: (1) to develop rapport among migrant parents, school personnel, and community by increasing interpersonal contacts; (2) to increase interest and knowledge among migrant parents about the education of the children; (3) to involve all school personnel in the development of an effective parent-school-community involvement program; (4) to enhance the migrant parents' and school personnel's knowledge of local, State, and Federal Agencies, and other organizations that may improve the socio-economic status of the migrant; and, (5) to promote and involve migrant parents in all types of educational opportunities available.
