Parent engagement has long been regarded as critical to students’ success in school. Many schools and districts, however, have struggled to involve parents and encourage them to become more directly immersed in their children’s education. Some schools and districts have managed to address these issues by taking distinctive approaches to engaging parents, such as setting flexible schedules for school activities so that adult caretakers with work commitments can participate, and arranging seminars to strengthen parents’ academic skills in subjects like math and reading. Our guests will discuss why parent engagement matters, and why schools and districts struggle with it. They will also point to promising practices that schools and districts are using in this area—and how schools can move beyond these practices to develop systems that support the engagement of families and communities in students’ education.
