Studies show that parental involvement in a child's education is one of the most important factors in raising student self-esteem and academic achievement.
Most experts agree that parental involvement should go beyond attendance at teacher conferences and open house.
As GVA parents, we have all agreed to give our school 30 hours of volunteer time, per family, per year.
We realize, however, that each of our families is unique – with its own priorities, needs, talents, and time constraints -- and so we try to provide as many different kinds of opportunities for parental involvement as possible.
