Part 1: Supporting districts in the development, assessment, and implementation of parent engagement policies, programs and plans [DRAFT 12-02-04]

Parent Engagement Information and Tools: Moving Beyond Parent Involvement to Parent Engagement

Michiganís educators are among the best in the world and when the state, school districts, schools and parents unite to support one goal: to help Michiganís children succeed, great progress can happen. Today, with new federal mandates, including annual testing and adequate yearly progress, increasing student achievement is more important than ever before. To continue the Michigan Department of Education (MDE) and State Board of Educationís commitment to increasing student achievement, we have developed a wide range of information and resources to assist districts and schools in their parent engagement efforts.

Our first information packet is designed to support districts in the development, assessment, and implementation of parent engagement policies, programs and plans. Additional packets of parent engagement information on topics dealing with school environment, communications and engagement activities will be released during the first quarter of 2005.

We invite you to review, utilize, reproduce, and share these materials and tools and hope they serve as a meaningful resource. View the draft document at: http://www.michigan.gov/documents/Parent_Involvement_Part_1_12-16-04_111426_7.pdf
