Parents On Premises: Increasing Parental Involvement in Schools

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Over the past three years, Campbell School has transformed the learning culture of the school. In Year One, the school incorporated Family Fun Nights to engage parents and students in learning opportunities that enhanced the Common Core Standards. In Year Two, the school built upon these opportunities by creating the "Not the Same Old Parent Workshop" series to instruct parents on how instruction and content have changed since they were in school. Now, Campbell School has taken the experiences from these two successes to create the TOPS (Teaching Our Parents and Students) Volunteer Training Program, where parents have received formal instruction in preparation to set up enhanced instructional volunteer opportunities with the classroom. This presentation will walk the participants through the program's development, implementation and assessment, in an effort to assist other schools and districts in replicating the program.
