Identifying Concerns, Sharing Solutions
As Delaware’s Lieutenant Governor, I visit Delaware public schools on a regular basis, and one of the things that I hear the most from teachers is how important parental involvement is to student success. As part of a broader effort to expand parental involvement in Delaware's public schools, I created the Excellence in Parental Involvement award in 2009. It is given annually to two public schools that have successfully expanded parental involvement through innovative programs.
This guide (pdf) highlights programs that “Excellence in Parental Involvement” schools have in place to improve their parental involvement.
