THE BENEFITS OF BEING INVOLVED AT YOUR CHILD'S SCHOOL
Research continues to prove that parental involvement and engagement, especially during high school, results in increased student achievement. Students whose parents take an active role in their education tend to earn higher grades, attend school regularly, demonstrate better social skills and behavior, and are more prepared for college and careers. By partnering together, schools and families can help each and every student realize their own personal strengths and find success.
