I know that parental involvement is closely related to my children's success in school. What else do I need to do beyond attending parent-teacher meetings and volunteering in their classrooms? -- For Involvement


Being involved in your children's education does not take any special skills. What it takes is time, attention and common sense. Here are some additional ways you can be involved:

  • -Read notes and newsletters from the school.
  • -Talk with your children's teachers regularly.
  • -Keep up with the homework your children are doing.
  • -Read and discuss work your children bring home with them.
  • -Read aloud to your children, and encourage them to read.
  • -Set high standards for your child.
  • -Create a climate for learning in your home.
