This research brief summarizes the latest evidence base on effective family involvement in middle and high school. As the third and final report in a series on how family involvement matters across the developmental continuum, this brief synthesizes research studies that link family involvement in middle and high school to youth's academic and social outcomes. It also profiles programs that have been evaluated to show what works to promote family involvement and student achievement during this critical developmental period. The brief concludes with implications for policy, practice, and research. (Contains 1 figure and 77 endnotes.) [For "Family Involvement in Elementary School Children's Education.
