Six Types of Parent Involvement

Parental involvement may take place either in the classroom or during extracurricular activities. However, the Lukachukai Community School LCBE, Inc. also encourages parental involvement at home (e.g., planned home reading time, informal learning activities, and/or homework contracts between teachers parents and children).

The six types of involvement are:

  • Parenting: Help all families establish home environments to support children as students.
  • Communicating: Design effective forms of school-to-home and home-to-school communications about school programs and childrens progress.
  • Volunteering: Recruit and organize parent help and support.
  • Learning at Home: Provide information and ideas to families about how to help students at home with homework and other curriculum-related activities, decisions and planning.
  • Decision-Making: Include parents in school decisions, develop parent leaders and representatives.
  • Collaborating with Community: Identify and integrate resources and services from the community to strengthen school programs, family practices and student learning and development.
