  7. 7. Marginal Proficiency Parents meet their children’s basic physical, emotional and social needs, but do not believe they need to play a significant, direct role in their children’s education. Teachers have little success motivating these parents to do much beyond sending their children to school.   www.drlourdes.net 1
  8. 8. Limited Proficiency Parents provide for their children’s basic physical, emotional and social needs but have limited involvement in their children’s education. Because of an inconsistent level of involvement, teachers perceive these parents as having unmet potential for improving their children’s learning outcomes.     www.drlourdes.net 2
  9. 9. Target Proficiency Parents provide for their children’s basic needs and consistently create a home environment which is conducive to learning . They make reading a family norm, supervise homework and connect productively with teachers. They build character traits such as responsibility, persistence, a strong work ethic, and the ability to delay gratification. Teachers perceive these parents as integrated partners.     www.drlourdes.net 3
  10. 10. Exemplary Proficiency Parents go beyond proficiency by demonstrating a sense of responsibility regarding their children’s school improvement efforts.
