The research has been clear for years. Student learning outcomes improve when parents are involved.
Importance of Parental Participation
That involvement may take different forms.
It can include attending school events or volunteering in the classroom. At home it might entail helping with homework, talking about the school day or reading together.
One thing is for sure, students benefit when their families are interested and engaged in their lives and learning at school.
Keeping parents apprised of their child’s learning progress is one of the most important things teachers do to ensure their students have every chance to succeed.
Non English Speaking Family Challenge
In families where English is not the first language, keeping parents informed about their child’s progress can be challenging.
Even when schools offer translation services for report cards and parent-teacher interviews, it does little to help parents understand what is happening day-to-day in the classroom and how their child is managing each assignment.
It can be tough for parents to be as deeply involved as they want to be in their child’s learning.
