Parental Involvement in School

Studies have indicated that children whose parents and/or other significant adults share in their formal education EducatingKids.jpgtend to do better in school. Some benefits that have been identified that measure parental involvement in education include:

  • Higher grades and test scores
  • Long term academic achievement
  • Positive attitudes and behavior
  • More successful programs
  • More effective schools
                
All parents want their children to become successful, caring adults. Similarly, many parents want to be involved with the formal education of their children. Sometimes, however, they don't know where to start, when to find the time, or how to go about making positive connections with the school.  At the most basic level, parents can begin encouraging the education of their children by showing that they truly value education themselves.

PARENT INFORMATION HANDBOOK 2014-15

Sanger Unified School District believes that parent involvement is a critical component in the growth, development, happiness and success of every student.  Parents are encouraged to be an active participant in their child's education.

The Sanger Unified School District Parent Information Handbook is distributed to every parent on the first day of school.  A copy is provided below for your convenience.
