GET INVOLVED! Parent Involvement Brochure

One of the resources developed in collaboration with the Georgia Parent Information and Resource Center is a new brochure entitled Get the facts...get connected...GET INVOLVED! This brochure features fifteen ways parents can get involved in their child's education by offering tips for school and home.




Parental Involvement means the participation of parents in regular, two-way, and meaningful communication involving student academic learning and other school activities. The involvement includes ensuring that parents play an integral role in assisting their child's learning; that parents are encouraged to be actively involved in their child's education at school; that parents are full partners in their child's education and are included, as appropriate, in decision making and on advisory committees to assist in the education of their child.
