Parent and Home Involvement in Schools. An Introductory Packet.
California Univ., Los Angeles. Center for Mental Health Schools.
This information packet for those interested in promoting parent and family involvement in their children's schools opens with "A Quick Overview of Some Basic Resources." This section contains lists of 28 selected references, some research syntheses available from the Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC), and 10 Internet resources specializing in assistance related to parent involvement in schools. The packet also presents an example of a model program developed by James Comer and colleagues at the Yale Child Study Center. Some names from the consultant cadre of the Center for Mental Health in Schools are listed as resource persons. Also listed are a few other agencies that focus on parents and home involvement for immigrants, ethnic minorities, and the poor. An article by Howard S. Adelman, "Intervening To Enhance Home Involvement in Schooling" ("Intervention in School and Clinic," v29 n5 p276-87 May 1994), details types of home involvement in schooling and ways to implement this involvement effectively. A final section contains easy-to-use overviews, surveys, and sample forms as resource aids. (SLD)
