  • 4 The Parent Engagement Effect Negative Impact: • Poor/ unrealistic college choices • College rejection • Diminished Financial Aid package • Poor preparation for 12th grade (underclassmen)
  • 5 The Parent Engagement Effect Causes? • Students no longer utilizing email as main method of communication. (Texting) • Short attention span to lengthy messages or tasks sent online • Lack of parent involvement
  • 6 The Parent Engagement Factor What we know (Duh!): Students across all socio economic classes are more prepared for college when there is parental involvement.
  • 7 The Parent Engagement Effect The Kappa Alpha Psi Parent Engagement Initiative Problem: Student usage of Naviance began to decline as use of text, twitter and instagram becomes more popular means of communication. Solution: Shifted to a more “Parent-Centric” model of using Naviance.
  • 8 The Parent Engagement Effect The Parent-Centric Model: #1. 80% of all communication directed at parents regarding tasks for their children to complete in Naviance. #2. Focus on providing more parent based resources and information as it pertains to college and financial aid planning. #3. Establish a parent resource website within the Naviance pages
  • 9 The Parent Engagement Effect #4. Weekly updates to parents on critical items for completion to parents #5. Development of parent “groups” within Naviance #6. Year-end surveys to parents to determine their needs and how to increase effective use of Naivance

Establish a “Parent Communications” team responsible for developing a parent-centric program for using Naviance and distributing communications on a consistent basis.
