Planning and Implementing Parent/Community Involvement into the Instructional Delivery System. Proceedings from a Parent/Community Involvement Conference.
Barletta, Charles, Ed.; And Others
Bringing together parents, teachers, and researchers, this conference was intended to provide a climate in which participants could examine their own needs and develop their own action plans for the development and implementation of parent and community participation in schools. The goals of the conference were to provide descriptions of proven parent/community participation models, consider the decisions teachers must make and the institutional arrangements needed when implementing such models, and delineate the significant research questions concerning further refinement of existing models. Participants whose presentations are included in this volume looked at the characteristics of current models of parent/community involvement in teaching and learning, the settings in which models have been implemented, constraints to be considered by users, future of the models, and the interface of the school-oriented dimensions of the model with other community efforts. Overviews are offered of the Home Education Learning Program (HELP), Home School Institute (HSI), Parent Education Follow Through Program, Parents Are Teachers Too Program, Parent Education Program, and the Preparing Educators for Parent/Community Involvement Workshops.
