Education Partnerships, Inc.
What are some ways in which to get parents meaningfully involved in their child's high school? According to the research, the most successful programs are those that provide a variety of ways in which parents can be actively engaged in their child's academic life. Joyce Epstein, Director of the National Network of Partnership Schools, out of Johns Hopkins, has established six types of parent involvement: (1) Parenting; (2) Communicating; (3) Volunteering; (4) Learning at Home; (5) Decision Making; and (6) Collaborating with Community. Some specific ways in which parents can become more meaningfully engaged and involved in their child's school and/or academic life are enumerated in this paper. (Contains 18 online resources.)
