Different Schools….
  • What Does Parent Involvement Look Like at Your School?
slide6
Why?
  • Open Door days were created to fulfill a need. The need was and still is to strengthen and build the relationship between teachers, students and parents. Additionally, there is a need for parents to actually see what is taking place during the school day and to take a larger role in their children’s educations.
slide7
Who?
  • We have put together a PIC – Parent Involvement Committee…it includes teachers, administrators, and parents.
  • Who would you include?
where
Where?
  • Let’s get those parents into the school building! Let’s get them into the public library! Let’s get them in to all events, even events that don’t include their own children!
  • Where were your parents be most comfortable getting together? Where should there be parents, that there aren’t?
slide9
When?
  • Our big program, Open Door Days, is during the school day, once a month, on the teacher’s schedule. Our 4th and 5th grade teachers use lessons (on the ning, for your use and modification) that are based on our curriculum and deal with many literacy-based skills, such as: comprehension, rereading, questioning, writing in response to reading, writing in response to math, test taking strategies and skills, and summer programs that are available in the community (that’s May).

When continued….
  • Our 6th graders are using a book Pass It On, that helps connect the dots between school now and future goals, such as college, trade school, and careers. We were able to use title I funds to pay for these books and the author, Sarah Klerk gave us a wonderful discount and came to speak to our parents on our opening night event.

  • Even though we thought that having parents in during the day, would be a great way for them to see what really goes on, it has been difficult for many.
  • We have begun social events to help parents feel more comfortable coming to school: a tailgate event, fashion show, job application night, NCAA field day, talent show.
