The Partnership for Kentucky School Reform Informational Sheets.
Partnership for Kentucky School Reform, Lexington.
Three informational sheets provide parents and employers with advice on ways of assisting school reform through becoming better citizens, getting more involved in the schools, and initiating supportive efforts. The three informational sheets are entitled: (1) "How Can You Be Involved as a Citizen?"; (2) "The ABCs of Parent Involvement"; and (3) "How Can Employers Be Involved?" Dozens of ideans are presented covering all three areas. Advice on parental involvement covers such areas as visiting school sites, volunteering to assist in classroom activities, supporting school programs and services, participating in the school's parent organizations, and supplementing and assisting in the child's educational process at home. Parental assistance through better citizenship includes being more involved in community support efforts for educational reform, sharing information designed to encourage school improvement, and informing legislators of the need to provide support for school reform. Employers can help maintain reform efforts by becoming more involved in educating their employees and the community on the need for school improvement, as well as by applying their knowledge, skills, and resources to assist school districts and schools in the task of restructuring.
