  • The bridge “ideally” are families, educators, and members of the community, so that others may successfully walk over the water.
  • Mission: the gap between one end of the bridge to the other becomes extinct as relationships are built, we become one.Vision: all children are a creation intended for love, purpose, and all humans are responsible to love, protect and bring the children to their fullest potential.

  • Lindsey (2002) stated, “parent-child communication and parental interest in school work….. is a positive impact on attitudes about school and is connected to student success and retention” (Plourde & Hawes, 2005). Research has revealed that parental support is a must (Garrett, 2008). 2/13/2014 Parent Collaboration:Bridging the Gap between Home & School 8
  • Over 10,000 families and educators engaged since inception. Only part of one school has been fully committed. Wonder what would happen if more were committed to Parent Collaboration? 2/13/2014 Parent Collaboration:Bridging the Gap between Home & School 9
  •     A way for other schools to learn, train, and try Parent Collaboration (spread the word). Principals to support welcoming parents each week at a set time and day. Teachers to commit to meeting once-a-week. Time commitment from school district, city, and businesses to allow parents and teachers to meet. 2/13/2014 Parent Collaboration:Bridging the Gap between Home & School 10
  •    I have practiced Parent Collaboration (PC) since 2007, my teaching team began 2008. We have been practicing PC ever since with consistency and experiencing positive results. Others are encouraged to practice PC to gain the experience and share student success. The goal is to share the wealth in education. 2/13/2014 Parent Collaboration:Bridging the Gap between Home & School 11
  •      Traditional parent conferences are done on a one on one time basis. Typically, a parent will call for an appointment. Each school may vary on how the appointment is arranged and set. The parent may come with the child, or not, possibly leaving out one of the important key stakeholders. The parent typically, does not return to school for the reminder of the year. If so, it is only to repeat what was said the first time. 2/13/2014 Parent Collaboration:Bridging the Gap between Home & School 12
  •     The traditional parent/teacher conferences tend to repeat themselves from one to another going over the basic routines of each teachers class. The traditional parent/teacher conferences rarely go beyond the surface of any given issue. Often, time is wasted waiting for a no-show. There is rarely any change, or follow-up. 2/13/2014 Parent Collaboration:Bridging the Gap between Home & School 13
  •       Builds relationships Welcomes families Bypasses the hassle of making appointments Gives students the opportunity to take responsibility, as well as parents Gives teachers time to know their students’ families and background information in a casual and comfortable environment. Gives parents the opportunity to see their child’s classroom environment on a weekly basis. 2/13/2014 Parent Collaboration:Bridging the Gap between Home & School 14
  •     The Parent Collaboration (PC) program builds relationships, so that concerns are discussed, and interventions are put in place. PC meetings help key stakeholders (child included) to give suggestions, feedback, and encouragement towards improvement. Strategies are shared, discussed, and demonstrated. PC gives time to reteach, explain, and educate. 2/13/2014 Parent Collaboration:Bridging the Gap between Home & School 15
