Connecting Parents with your Organization
“Mom there is a meeting at school tonight!”
Not another boring meeting!
Parental involvement is at an all-time lowest. If we’re lucky, parents will find out about the meeting but will they even show up? Let’s face it, parents ARE busy. Some work more than one job to make ends meet or long hours to meet their business’ demands. Luckily, technology makes it easy to keep up with grades, test scores and parent-teacher emails. Yet there is something magical about the physical connection. I’m not encouraging “helicopter” tendencies but being present is crucial.
Research shows that when parents are positively involved with their child’s education and appreciative for what the school/organizations do, the student is more-likely improve and maintain high performance and focus. Collaboration is key. But what could keep them coming?
Statistics show that 6 out of 10 parents will show up if there is a clear agenda that benefits them too. Trust me, they love their kids but why show up if they can just get another recorded message at 7:00 PM? Change it up, but leave it to us!
