Highlighting the positive effects of parent involvement in schooling on children's achievement, this set of overhead-projector transparencies for staff training provides a rationale and strategies for encouraging parents to actively participate in their child's schooling. The overheads define family involvement, note research and opinion on the benefits of involvement for school success, and outline ways to improve family involvement and the ways families can participate. One transparency illustrates a five-step partnership process: (1) come together as a team; (2) identify and commit to shared responsibilities; (3) implement strategies for success; (4) evaluate the results of the partnership; and (5) strengthen the partnership. Ways to access information from the U.S. Department of Education are included. (HTH)
