Our Toolbox and Pledge can help you engage more families!

The Parental Involvement Toolbox is a family engagement program designed for schools that want to mobilize family engagement to improve student outcomes. Each Toolbox Parental Involvement Pledge and Parental Involvement Report Card are branded with each school's logo's for distribution to every student and family.  Schools organize parent responsibility with an effective model that is research-based, meets district, state and Title I ESSA mandates. 

How much economic value does the Toolbox add to your schools? Some 43% of K-12 parents volunteer at school according to U.S. Department of Education data. The Independent Sector says that the latest value of a volunteer hour is $25.43. Each parent who takes the Parental Involvement Pledge is generating $254.00 in volunteer impact. Imagine if 43% of the families in your community volunteered in your schools by taking the Pledge! The value far exceeds the cost a $400.00 One-Year Parental Involvement Toolbox!

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.

Title I ESSA Project Appleseed

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.
