Parent and Family Involvement — A Strategy Brief

from University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Researchers have spent ample time determining which variables influence school outcomes. Parent and family involvement is one such variable that has been found to be important to school outcomes. Parent involvement has shown to predict academic engagement independent of cultural differences; however, motivating and encouraging parent involvement may differ across cultural groups. Schools should evaluate how best to encourage parent involvement on a family's individual basis. Researchers have also found that parental involvement is especially important for students with behavioral issues. When schools determine best practices for students, especially students with behavioral issues, they should consider how they might collaborate with the students' family.
