Summary

This manual describes a parent involvement program on the elementary level. Although the primary aim of such a program is to broaden the learning opportunities of each child through increased personal attention and support, there are also many advantages for the teacher, the school, and the parents. The teacher has more time to devote to the professional aspects of teaching and is able to learn more about the individual child; the school is able to obtain skills and services from parents which might not otherwise be available due to financial limitations; and the parents are able to share in their children's development and to enrich their own lives through meaningful contributions to their community. The manual shows how parents can aid teachers, and provides guidelines for planning, implementing, and evaluating such a program. Several pages are devoted to suggested activities which may be assigned to parents, ranging from clerical tasks to large group activities. A reference list is provided for additional help in planning for parent involvement. (Author/PC)
