Dear Education Leader:

Decades of research support the connection between parent involvement and factors that affect school success. In fact, when parents are simply more involved than average, their children are an astonishing 30% more successful in school—as measured by GPAs; test scores in math, science, reading and social studies; and promotion, retention and teacher ratings.1

Getting parents involved in their children’s education is not just a "nice idea." Educators can’t do our job as effectively without parents’ help. It is a challenge to get them engaged and involved, but you don’t have to solve the problem on your own.

The Parent Institute has been providing schools with research-based, practical publications to engage families and boost student achievement for more than two decades.  Now we’d like to help you reach out to parents by giving you the experts’ best ideas absolutely free.

Download your free copy of 10 Things Any School Can Do to Build Parent Involvement . . . Plus Five Great Ways to Fail! now, and you’ll learn:

  • Strategies for building a school-home team that maximizes the unique strengths that each brings
  • Practical, specific suggestions for things parents can do at home to support learning
  • How to get parents to read what you send home
  • The top four questions that many parents want answered

  • 12 ways to recognize and reward exemplary parent involvement practice in staff and parents
