Decades of research shows that parent involvement is directly linked to students academic success. The challenge for school districts is finding the most effective and efficient ways to engage parents in their childrens' education.
Lets face it, parenting is hard work-and many parents simply dont know where they fit in the education process for their children. Parent Today can help. Through monthly e-newsletters backed by an information-rich blog site, Parent Today helps school districts bridge the gap between families and the classroom while fostering stronger connections and improved parent involvement. This nationally award-winning resource is intended to help build improved student outcomes and relationships with parents and guardians — a key stakeholder group in every district.
Stories focus on four "chapters" of a childs life: early learners, elementary school, the middle years and high school. Each e-newsletter features blog-style posts, addressing relevant topics about what is happening in the classroom and students lives.
In addition to encouraging families to sign up to receive Parent
Today e-newsletters, participating school districts may post
excerpts or full stories from Parent Today on their websites and
social media channels, or include in their school newsletters and
other publications to ensure maximum exposure and impact. Parent
Today also produces periodic brochures and fact sheets tailored to
specific hot-button topics that school districts can reproduce and
share with their families to improve outcomes for students.
