Enhancing Home Involvement to Address Barriers to Learning: A Collaborative Process. A Center Report
Center for Mental Health in Schools at UCLA
For schools to significantly enhance home involvement will require (1) broadening the focus beyond thinking only in terms of parents and (2) enhancing the range of ways in which schools connect with primary caretakers. Particular attention must be given to outreaching to those who are reluctant to engage with the school, especially if they have a child who is not doing well. Also, to avoid marginalization and minimize fragmentation, it is essential to embed home involvement interventions into an overall approach for addressing factors interfering with school learning and performance and fully integrate the work into school improvement policy and practice. Appended are: (1) Home Involvement in Schooling; and (2) School-Community Collaboration (Contains 3 exhibits.)
