In October of 1987, New Jersey implemented the Partners in Learning program to increase levels of awareness and participation among parents and school staff. In the final phase of the program, 30 schools were selected to receive grants to plan and implement parent involvement programs. This document describes some of the successful grant applicants' plans to involve parents. Schools plan to: (1) increase parent knowledge and ability to assist children in the learning process; (2) help parents fulfill their own potential; (3) help parents understand their role in the overall scheme of educating children; and (4) assist school staff in minimizing barriers to effective partnerships. A total of 27 programs are very briefly described. (RH)
