What is in the Parental Involvement Toolbox?

Project Appleseed's Parental Involvement Toolbox is the original program designed for educators and parent leaders who strive to supersize and mobilize family engagement to improve student outcomes. Schools organize parent responsibility with an effective model that is research-based, meets district and state mandates, Title I and best practices. Each Toolbox's Parental Involvement Pledge and Parental Involvement Report Card is customizeable and branded with each school's logo's for distribution to every student and family.

"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!
