14 Parents… you can influence the success of your child in school more than any teacher or federal program: Serve as a role model, showing your child that you support his/her education. Assure that you are aware of your child’s educational progress, thereby demonstrating how important that progress is to you. Teach your student that your input at the school is appreciated and that you support its efforts.

15 Research shows that how well a child does in school depends a great deal upon how much their parents get involved in their education. You can become more involved by: Supporting school extra-curricular activities. Volunteering at the school. Attending parent-teacher conferences. Communicating with your child’s teacher regularly, by writing notes, telephoning the school, etc. Keeping your child’s teacher informed about events in your child’s life which may affect his/her performance at school. Discussing with your child’s teacher and parent organizations other ideas for parent involvement.
