Summary

This monograph offers suggestions to teachers and administrators for involving parents in middle school programs. It outlines the reasons for encouraging such involvement, identifies some of the roles parents may play, and delineates the steps to be taken in establishing a program that taps the time and talents of parents and other adults. Detailed descriptions are included of six ongoing programs from around the country that strengthen the school-home bond: "New Ways to Involve Parents" from Hopkins West Junior High School in Minnetonka, Minnesota; "Project Adolescent" at Amherst Middle School in Amherst, New Hampshire; "Adolescent Behavior Educational Seminar" from Humboldt Junior High School in Dewey, Arizona; "Successful Home/School Interaction" from Hines Middle School in Newport News, Virginia; "ISS (in-school suspension) Program" at Burley Middle School in Charlottesville, Virginia; and "Parents for Excellence in Education" programs at Weisenborn Junior High School in Huber Heights, Ohio. References for additional information are included, along with an appendix that provides 13 tips for parents working with their middle school students at home and a flyer designed to assist schools in attracting parents to various volunteer roles.
