Parent Involvement

Parent involvement is critical to student success:

“The research is clear, consistent, and convincing -- parent, family, and community involvement in education correlates with higher academic performance and school improvement. When schools, parents, families, and communities work together to support learning, students tend to earn higher grades, attend school more regularly, stay in school longer, and enroll in higher-level programs. Researchers cite parent-family community involvement as a key to addressing the school dropout crisis and note that strong school-family-community partnerships foster higher educational aspirations and more motivated students. The evidence holds true for students at both the elementary and secondary level, regardless of the parent’s education, family income, or background -- and the research shows parent involvement affects students’ academic achievement across all races.”

-Harvard Family Research Project in 2013
