Abstract

The purpose of the research was to identify the preference of parents regarding the type of communication they receive from schools. Communication of general, negative, and positive information was considered in this study. Participants were parents of school-age children from a rural school district with a pre-kindergarten through high school level program. The quantitative research was designed using a survey with a Likert scale. The parents had the opportunity to participate in a parent and teacher conference event, which provided the best chance for input from most parents. The results were shared with district and building level administrators to help make future best practice decisions.
