Online Parent Engagement
The importance of parent engagement
Research clearly indicates that good education becomes
better education when there is a strong connection with
parents as part of the learning community. The positive results
of strong parent engagement include the critical measures of
improved student achievement, increased accountability and a
restored confidence among parents in their child’s education.
Resources for parents
EdisonLearning’s online portfolio provides certified teachers,
customized instruction and proven curriculum. When strong
parent involvement is added, you’ve got a recipe for student
success. In a survey conducted by the Department of
Education, 87% of parents with children enrolled in traditional
brick-and-mortar schools report their greatest barrier to
becoming more involved in their child’s education is lack
The flexibility that online learning affords immediately
addresses this challenge. With EdisonLearning’s online
platform, parents can leverage a wealth of tools designed to
keep them abreast of their child’s progress, communicate
freely with teacher’s and oversee their child’s day-to-day
activities – all from a place and time that’s convenient for
them. The meaningful, student focused, two-way parent
engagement that results, creates a new level of depth in
communication and involvement.
A recent study by researchers Karen Smith Conway, professor
of economics at the University of New Hampshire, and
Andrew Houtenville, senior research associate at New
Editions Consulting, prove parental effort is consistently
associated with higher levels of achievement, and the
magnitude of the effect of parental involvement is substantial.
They found that schools would need to increase per-pupil
spending by more than $1,000 in order to achieve the same
results that are gained with strong parental engagement.
By offering the tools and resources that keep pace with
the way students and parents interact with the world,
EdisonLearning Online’s resources for parents increase
The one-of-a-kind Parent Portal gives EdisonLearning Online
partners the ability to connect to and achieve a deep
relationship with families involved in their online programs. The
Parent Portal is powered by three capabilities: information,
communication, and oversight.
• Information The Parent Portal is a personalized home
page offering up-to-the-minute information about student’s
progress 24 hours a day. Through the Parent Portal, parents
can quickly and easily see grades and academic progress,
monitor attendance, and receive achievement intervention
alerts and school and course announcements.
• Communication With one single sign-on, parents can also
stay closely connected with school staff through our internal
messaging system. This system works similarly to email,
and allows parents to easily communicate with their child’s
instructors and advisors about individual progress or other
“When educators work together with families
to support learning, children tend to succeed
not just in school, but throughout life.”
