- Strong correlation between parental involvement at school and improved student attitudes, achievement and attendance.
- Successful parental involvement leads to better school reputation in the school community, improved teacher morale and higher ratings of teacher performance.
- Six types of parental involvement
- Learning at home
- Decision making
- Collaborating with the community
The most positive effect is achieved when parents are involved in all six ways.
- Sense of community – P&C is a great way to be proactively involved in school decision making and events and to be kept informed.
- Friends – through P&C you will develop a strong support network with other parents and lasting friendships.
- Rewarding and fun – meetings are social and informative and a lot of fun.
