Getting parents involved can be tricky and hard. I am currently working at a school in the NT and parent involvement is poor. ** 1. We have had a meet the teacher night - Parents and their child can come and meet you, check out the school etc. ** 2. We do student-led conferences - which requires 100% parent involvement. ** 3. We also send out class letters asking for parent help, in the classroom and on excursions and sporting events etc. ** 4. And last but not least we are starting up a parent help hour in the school library. Hope this helps someone.
