Parent engagement

  1. 1. 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 of time. 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. Credible results 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 student achievement. Parent Portal 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 important issues. “When educators work together with families to support learning, children tend to succeed not just in school, but throughout life.” - Henderson & Berla by Milne, Eagle, Sattes, Clark, and Benson et al.
