Project Appleseed's membership will give your schools research based content to promote family engagement in a consistent and sustainable program model.

  • You get unlimited reproduction rights to our web site content for distribution in newsletters, memos, booklets, pamphlets and more for one year!*
  • 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
  • GUIDE: CDC’s Parent Engagement: Strategies for Involving Parents in School Health (pdf 2 MB) defines and describes engagement between parents and school staff and identifies specific strategies for all three aspects of parent engagement in schools: connect, engage, and sustain.
  • GUIDE: CDC’s Promoting Parent Engagement in School Health: A Facilitator’s Guide for Staff Development (pdf 3 MB) helps schools and school groups develop a plan for engaging parents in school health activities. Both of these resources provide the evidence-based framework for Parents for Healthy Schools.

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.

You get unlimited membershio reproduction rights to our web site content for distribution in newsletters, memos, booklets, pamphlets and more for one year!*
