Summary

This handbook provides ideas for Pennsylvania school districts attempting to get parents more involved in school programs. There are five sections. The first describes the importance of parent involvement and defines such involvement as "meaningful partnerships between parents and school which demonstrate commitment to improving student performance, increasing student achievement, and enhancing the quality of school programs which provide effective two-way communication between the school and the community." Section two provides suggestions for programs at the district level that can be used to generate parent and community involvement. A planning process is outlined, and recommendations are focused on community education, school-business partnerships, and working with citizens' advisory committees. Section three suggests building level activities and practices, and section four lists techniques that promote better communication. Section five is a directory of resources and sample policies schools can use when developing their parent involvement efforts. An appendix contains useful resources, including guidelines and program assessment instruments. (KH)
