Community and Parent Involvement
How can we make this happen?
Teachers can communicate with local cable companies and have their web sites listed free of charge.
Teachers can also collaborate with local cable companies to have lessons/information posted.
Teachers can have students create newsletters to be sent home in an effort to communicate with the parents and increase their involvement and understanding.
This is the homepage for PTO Today. It provides a wealth of information regarding parent/teacher issues and offers ideas for building effective parent/teacher organizations.
National Education Association
This is the homepage of the National Education Association. It provides numerous resources relating to improving parent/school relations and offers links to understanding testing and various subjects.
This site offers a dozen different ways to promote parent involvement and provides links to a number of educational resources.
