Parent/Guardian involvement leads to student success!

Study after study has shown us that student achievement improves when parents/guardians play an active role in their children’s education, and that good schools become even better schools when parents/guardians are involved. It is recognized that parent/guardian engagement is a key factor in the enhancement of student achievement and well-being.

Students are more likely to be motivated, to earn higher grades, to have better behaviour and social skills, and to continue their education to a higher level when their parents are actively engaged in supporting their success at school.

It is equally important to recognize that parent involvement takes many forms:

  • serving on school councils and Parent Involvement Committees (PICs)
  • volunteering for field trips and school activities
  • making sure there is a quiet place set aside to do homework,
  • helping with homework
  • meeting with teachers
  • talking to your child about their day at school.
