Strategies to Boost Parent Participation
#1 Offer use of a school computer or tablet when families are on campus for parent/teacher conferences, IEP meetings, school events, pick-up and drop-off times, parent group meetings and when you make home visits. Have translators or support staff available to assist parents.
#2 Follow-up phone calls, emails, and personal interactions to confirm parents received a login code are effective. Mention that the survey will take only a few minutes to complete and that their input is valued.
#3 Use email, social media, and message apps to promote the survey and send periodic reminders.
