School-Community Partnerships: Increasing the Role of Parents and the Community in Education

Research has shown that parent involvement is one of the strongest indicators of students’ success in school. Historically, our school has struggled to successfully enlist the support of parents and the community. Our leadership idea is to create an advisory committee consisting of parents, teachers, and other community members dedicated to making the school a better place for learning. Our advisory committee would help make our school more culturally responsive by helping to plan family nights and other school activities. The committee would help make decisions for the school, conduct workshops, discuss policy issues and implementation, and also create opportunities for socialization between parents, teachers, and community members.
