Increasing parent involvement in a school is a multifaceted process.
Many parents are busy, struggling, preoccupied, and distrustful of public
agencies, including schools. Despite this, they can be encouraged to be
more involved in the schools as volunteers, committee representatives, or
working with their children at home. Schools must create an environment
in which all parents know, like, and trust (KLT) the school, its policies and
practices, and the staff.

This concept is at the heart of our new Training Kit, Parent Involvement Action Packets for K-12 Schools.This Kit is all about providing the school and parent group with 20 “Done for You” Activities designed to quickly get your parent program to new height of involvement.
