Parent Involvement Overview
The parental involvement provisions in Title I, Part A stress shared accountability between schools and parents for high student achievement, including local development of parental involvement plans with sufficient flexibility to address local needs, and building parents’ capacity for using effective practices to improve their own children’s academic achievement.
Reporting provisions added by the No Child Left Behind Act offer parents important insight into their children’s education, the professional qualifications of their teachers, and the quality of the schools they attend. The new legislation ensures that parents have the information they need to make well-informed choices for their children, more effectively share responsibility with their children’s schools, and help those schools develop effective and successful academic programs.
