Description

Our goal is to better educate students for a brighter future, and to be able to inform parents of ways to be better involved in their student’s education and schools. Parent involvement was studied by an online survey form sent throughout many different school districts to find out how parents feel about parent involvement in their district. It was found that lack of time and funding are the leading causes for parents to not be involved in their children’s schooling. At the same time, parents also see a positive sense of community, communication, and collaboration with the school.
