  22. 22. PARENTAL INVOLVEMENT The Opportunity: What Family Engagement/Parental Involvement Looks Like for the South Region/South Atlanta Cluster Family Engagement/Parental Involvement for the South Region is a collaborative on-going partnership between South Region, families, parents and schools. We recognize that family engagement/parental involvement is vital to student success. Therefore, we strive to work together build strong partnerships with parents to bridge the gap between the home and the school. What the South Region/South Atlanta Cluster will specifically do: 1. Listen to the felt needs of parents in order to build academically and socially sound family engagement programming. 2. Consistently conduct needs assessments to determine the needs of families at the district and school levels. 3. Be intentional about educating ALL staff through faculty and staff meetings about the importance of family engagement and parental involvement at the school-level. 4. Create a warm and welcoming space and environment as parents enter the building. 5. Provide incentives for parents that regularly attend district and school level family engagement/parental involvement activities and workshops. 12/10/2013 22
  23. 23. PARENTAL INVOLVEMENT What South Region South Atlanta Cluster parents can specifically do: 1. Share needs/barriers with school staff. (Principals, Parent Liaisons, Teachers and other Support Staff) 2. Make certain to take family engagement/parental involvement surveys offered at the district and school levels. 3. Check with the school’s parent liaison to receive information pertaining to family engagement/parental involvement activities and events. Barriers Preventing Parents from Experiencing Family Engagement/ Parental Involvement Currently we are experiencing some barriers as it relates to family engagement/ parental involvement in the South Region/ Caver Cluster. It is our goal to decrease the barriers in order to increase involvement and participation. Some barriers include: 1. Parents are dealing with personal issues that hinder their involvement/participation. 2. Lack of zeal and time. 3. Educational Barriers that prevent parents from effectively communicating with school staff and teachers regarding their child’s education. 4. Inclusion of the entire school staff (Principal, Asst. Principals, Parent Liaisons, Teachers, and other support staff) supporting the family engagement/parental involvement program and its initiatives. 12/10/2013 23
  24. 24. CLUSTER INITIATIVES AND HIGHLIGHTS 1.
