Sample Best Practices for Parent Involvement in Schools

The Ohio Department of Education has compiled a list of best practices, organized under six categories. They are based on the State Board of Education's Parent and Family Involvement Policy, the National PTA's National Standards for Family-School Partnerships and Joyce L. Epstein's Framework of Six Types of (Parent) Involvement.

Parents: Get Involved

One of the easiest ways to encourage parental involvement is to make that information easy to find on your school or district web site. The Madison School District in Phoenix, AZ has a page under Parents: Get Involved listing a number of steps and where to find additional information.

Check out your school's web site. Is it easy for parents to volunteer or learn how to get involved in your school?

Pender High School pupils produce popcorn

Business-school partnerships are not just for cities. Thinking "outside the box", Pender High School in Burgaw, NC partnered with a local farmer to create popcorn.

Agricultural students learned about growing and processing 700 pounds of popcorn, art students designed a logo and the business class created a local distribution plan.
