“Involving the community and engaging parents in the education of their children is critical for the successful implementation of any intervention associated with closing the achievement gap and increasing graduation rates.”


“However, unless parent and community involvement in education is deliberately planned and connected to a school’s and district’s academic goals for students, such efforts may not produce the desired results.”

- California Action Team Plan 2009
