Parent Involvement Programs in California Public Schools: Families, Schools, and Communities Working Together.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento. Parenting and Community Education Office.
This document, which is designed to serve as a resource for school districts that are formulating comprehensive parent involvement programs, provides a representative sampling of parent involvement programs in California. Section 1 lists programs operating at the local educational level that: (1) help parents develop parenting skills and foster conditions at home that support children's efforts in learning; (2) provide parents with knowledge of the techniques they need to help children learn; (3) provide access to and coordinate community and support services for children and families; (4) promote clear two-way communication between the school and the family as to school programs and children's progress; (5) involve parents who have been appropriately trained in instructional and support roles at the school; and (6) support parents as decision makers and develop their leadership, governance, advisory, and advocacy roles. Section 2 represents other sources that were selected for inclusion because they were operating programs or provided services in the listed school districts. Finally, Section 3 describes parent involvement services available from the California Department of Education. Thirty-five references and a copy of the California State Board of Education Policy on Parent Involvement conclude the document. (SAK)
