The task of increasing parent involvement in any school can be daunting let alone at the secondary level. I have located the following resource: National Resource of Partnership Schools which operates under the belief that parent involvement should not be left to chance or to one parent or educator.
A program of family and community involvement must be planned and implemented by an Action Team for Partnerships (ATP) – a committee of educators, parents, and community partners who work together to engage all families and the community in productive ways.

This planning tool asks for detailed information on the activities that the school Team will implement for the Six Types of Involvement listed above.
