1. Parental Involvement Pledge & Report Card Engagement Tools

U.S. Department of Education research says that about 8 out of 10 principals in high-poverty Title I schools rated compacts like the Parental Involvement Pledge as helpful, as did a majority of principals in low-poverty schools.

  • Across all schools, about 30 percent of the principals considered compacts “very helpful”.
  • Principals perceived compacts as having the greatest impact on homework completion, school climate, student discipline, and reading at home—factors that are amenable to intervention by school-family partnership activities.

Project Appleseed engages parent involvement in schools. During the past two decades, Project Appleseed has provided families and schools throughout the country with two widely celebrated events – National Parental Involvement Day and Public School Volunteer Week. These are the celebrations in which schools recruit, engage, count and recognize the services of America’s dedicated school volunteers. We celebrate those who have offered their time, encouragement, and meaningful contact with students.

3. The Red Carpet Treatment - Welcome All Families!

Our Red Carpet Treatment tool is our family friendly walk through process. It is a tool to provide schools with the opportunity to meet as a team in order to identify ways in which the school can create a more welcoming environment for families. Parents, including parents of children with disabilities, community members, school board members, educators, and administrators are asked to consider looking at the school through the lenses of all of the families who attend that school. Our guide has five different sections that focus on different aspects of engaging parents and families:

  • ESSA Title I Family Engagement
  • Physical Environment
  • School-wide Practices & Policies
  • Welcoming School Staff
  • Communication

Project Appleseed, family engagement, parental involvement public schools

"A 10% increase in parental participation (a form of social capital) would increase academic achievement far more than a 10% increase in school spending."

Project Appleseed, family engagement, parental involvement public schools

This is not an argument against school budget increases, but an argument for paying attention to social capital (Putnam, Sanders 2001). Research repeatedly correlates family engagement with student achievement, yet this strategy is rarely activated as an integral part of school reform efforts (Weiss et al, 2010).  Our program can increase family engagement in your school community!

Project Appleseed's Parental Involvement Toolbox is ourl program designed for educators and parent leaders to supersize and mobilize family engagement.
