  • Description:
    The strategies and actions recommended in this publication are based on a synthesis of parent engagement and involvement research and guidance from the fields of education, health, psychology, and sociology. Materials in the review include peer-reviewed journal articles, books, reports from government agencies and nongovernmental organizations, and Web sites. Information from these sources was summarized to identify parent engagement practices in school that demonstrated an impact on students’ academic and health behaviors. In addition, recommendations were informed by the opinions of expert researchers, public health practitioners, and educators at the Parents as Partners: Strengthening Parent/Family Involvement in School Health Policy and Practice meeting hosted by the National School Boards Association in 2008. This process identified evidence-based strategies and specific actions that can be taken to increase parent engagement in school health activities.

    This document was prepared by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Division of Adolescent and School Health (DASH), with conceptual, technical, and editorial assistance from others across CDC and experts from the fields of health, education, and family involvement and engagement.
