ISSUE: Parent involvement
OUR VIEW: Parents need support
Parental involvement is key to children’s success in school and extra-curricular activities. Formal research and anecdotal evidence both show that when mom or dad show interest, show support or just show their faces, kids and schools improve.
Kentucky law recognizes the importance of parental involvement in schools, mandating that parents have representatives on site-based councils and tracking some parent involvement data on annual school report cards.
