Shumaker, Kitty, Ed.; And Others
This manual is designed to inform parents about their role in the Behavior Analysis Follow Through Program. This program was designed to meet the educational needs of low-income students in the kindergarten through third grades and was validated as an effective and exemplary educational program by the U. S. Office of Education. The program emphasizes the basic skills of reading, mathematics, spelling, and handwriting. In this manual, the functions and benefits of participation in the Parent Advisory Council are explained. Employment of parents as paraprofessionals in the Follow Through classrooms is described along with procedures for seeking employment. Descriptions are given of other positions open to parents. To acquaint and assist parents new to the school area, a section of this manual lists the names, addresses, and important information about available community services. The listing includes health services, social services, recreation, educational opportunities, employment, preschool programs, housing, and legal aid. Appendices contain methods for conducting and making motions at a business meeting, ideas for getting parents involved with the school, and job descriptions for parent assistants. (CJ)
