Parent Tools

Parenting is a tough job...below are some tools that may help.

When parents and families get personally involved in education, their children do better in school and grow up to be more successful in life.

Family involvement in education means:

  • Reading a bedtime story to your preschool child
  • Checking homework every night
  • Getting involved in PTA
  • Discussing your children's progress with teachers
  • Voting in school board elections
  • Helping your school to set challenging academic standards
  • Limiting TV viewing to no more than two hours on school nights
  • Getting personally involved in governing your school
  • Becoming an advocate for better education in your community and state
  • Insisting on high standards of behavior for children.
