Family involvement promotes student success! Students with involved parents are more likely to:
Earn higher grades and test scores, have better attendance, and have fewer problems in school.
How parent involvement affects student achievement:
It may be one of the least controversial statements in American education: Parent involvement can make a difference in a child's education. Two-thirds of teachers surveyed (Public Agenda, 2003) believed that their students would perform better in school if their parents were more involved in their child's education, while 72% of parents say children of uninvolved parents sometimes "fall through the cracks" in schools (Johnson & Duffett, 2003).
While virtually all schools promote parent involvement, there are different types, ranging from encouraging volunteering and fundraising to providing parents with home-based learning activities. Joyce Epstein of the John Hopkins University, Center on School, Family and Community Partnerships, one of the nations leading experts on parent involvement, has divided school parent involvement programs into six broad categories:
•• Parenting, Communicating, Volunteering, Learning at home, Decision-making, Community collaboration ••
Effective parent involvement comes when a true partnership exists between schools and families. Creating that partnership, especially around academics, is what works for student achievement.
Sunset Ridge offers many ways to be involved. Our PTA offers both morning and evening meetings, events, activities and volunteer opportunities. Additionally, your child's classroom and specials teachers often need volunteers to help throughout the year. Your involvement at Sunset Ridge (large or small) is always welcomed and appreciated, so Thank You!!
