The 1993 Parent Involvement Program Institute, a one-day parent conference, was held in May at Pace University under the sponsorship of the Office of Parent Involvement of the New York City Board of Education and Pace University. This institute combined various activities, including workshops, presentations, and displays of material on parent involvement. A selected number of Parent Involvement Program projects were showcased. More than 600 participants attended, including professional personnel, parents and children, and other interested individuals. Attendance was higher than in the preceding year, and the institute met its objectives. Participants rated the activities highly. It is recommended that the institute be held each year, and that it expand its activities and linguistically diversify its presentations. An exchange of information among the different parent-involvement programs is suggested. Three tables present some participant characteristics and responses. (SLD)
