- Be available to the community, schedule meetings open to the public at different times, and invite parents to set up appointments to discuss concerns.
- Work with PTAs and PTSAs to make parents feel welcome and comfortable in school – the first step toward parent involvement.
- Plan for and encourage parent-teacher communication, show parents and teachers how to use communication tools to build parent-teacher-student teamwork, and make sure available times are scheduled when parents can attend.
- Be active in the PTA and encourage teachers to become PTA members and to participate, too.
- Help the PTA keep its primary focus on education rather than fundraising. The Principal and PTA can work together to solve problems and set goals that will benefit students.
- Work with the PTA to develop a program for volunteer training, and use parent and community volunteers who can help enrich all areas of the school.
- Help parents stay informed on current issues in education, refer parents to helpful books, magazine articles, radio or TV programs and suggest materials to include if there is a parent resource center in the school or local library or school counseling office.
- Recognize PTA volunteers’ efforts and appreciate the contribution of parents.
- Encourage dialogue with parents that build confidence in the school’s leadership and strengthen family engagement.
