Different types of parent involvement practices produce different gains. The greatest impact comes from well-designed at-home activities such as interactive homework that allows children to show, share and demonstrate what they are learning in school.

Consider the following:

  • Assign homework that engages each child's parent and/or family to make learning more meaningful for the student.
  • Evaluate your opportunities for clear, two way communication between home and school.
  • Consider new ways to reach out to parents whose language is not English.
    Accommodate parents' work schedule when designing parent/family involvement opportunities.
  • Check out our Tip Sheets page for many parent/family involvement ideas.
  • If you need additional resources, please contact Julie Ruzek at 507-328-4354. Not all available resources have been included on these pages.
