What is Parent Involvement

 

Parent involvement is…

 

…the participation of parents in every facet of the education and development of children from birth to adulthood, recognizing that parents are the primary influence in children’s lives. Parent involvement takes many forms, including the parents’ shared responsibilities in decisions about children’s education, health, and well-being, as well as the parents’ participation in organization that reflect the community’s collaborative aspirations for all children.
