A Director's Handbook for Parental Involvement. Chapter I.
This handbook was written to help implementation of Delaware Public Law 100-297, Title I, Elementary and Secondary Education Program Reauthorized. It provides a step-by-step guide for fulfilling the six goals for parental involvement: (1) to inform parents of participating children of the reasons for participation in such programs, and the specific instructional objectives and methods of the program; (2) to support parental efforts, including training parents to work with their children in the home and to understand the program requirements, and training parents and teachers to work together; (3) to train teachers and other staff to work effectively with the parents of participating pupils; (4) to consult with parents concerning the manner in which they and the school can better work together and to give parents a feeling of partnership in their children's education; (5) to provide a comprehensive range of opportunities for parents to become informed of all facets of the program; and (6) to ensure opportunities for the full participation of parents who lack literacy skills or whose native language is not English. A substantial appendix includes handouts, letters, surveys, workshop agendas, and other related materials. (JD)
