Research shows that when parents are actively involved with their children's education, students' grades are higher, their self-esteem is greater, and they are more socially adjusted. In fact, the most accurate indicator of a student's academic success in school is not tied to family income or social status, but the extent to which a family:

  • Creates a home environment that encourages learning.
  • Sets high but realistic achievement and career expectations.
  • Becomes involved in their child's education and in the community.

In addition to attending parent-teacher conferences and other special events, opportunities to get involved at your child's school abound. A few examples include:

  • Tutoring
  • Mentoring
  • Classroom read-alouds
  • Classroom assistance
  • Non-classroom assistance (field trips, media center, etc.)
  • Organization involvement (PTA, foundation, School Site Council, etc.)
  • Before-and after-school programs
