Management Module: Parent Involvement. A Study of State Management Practices: Looking Back at Title I and Toward Chapter 1.
Harrison, Laurie R.
This volume is the third module, "Parent Involvement," of the evaluation report documenting how states met the requirements of Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, as amended in 1978, and identifying exemplary State management practices and documents. The module begins with a history of parent involvement under Title I up to its replacement by Chapter 1 of the Educational Consolidation and Improvement Act. The next section explains that approximately two-thirds of the States plan either to encourage parent involvement in their local education agencies (LEAs) or to take an active role in ascertaining whether or not the LEAs are consulting with parents. The last section presents examples, selected from those supplied by the States, to address parent involvement. The examples are divided into two basic categories with several subcategories. The first category, "forms of parent involvement," includes general tips; ways of involving parents at home, at school, and through councils; and parents' role in the design and implementation of programs. The second category, "methods of providing information to parents and staff on parent involvement," includes handbooks, newsletters, workshops and meetings, audiovisual materials, resource centers, parent-teacher conferences, home visits, and information notices sent home with children.
