Assets In Action: Many ways to always stay involved in a child's education

-A A +A
By Bernadette Lauritzen

This week, we look at Asset number 6, in the category of Support and Parent Involvement in Schooling.
This is defined as parents/guardians are actively involved in helping young person succeed in school.
Our 2009 data states that 33 percent had this Asset in their lives and in 2013 that number increased to 43 percent.
The most important thing I would say is that you always have to be involved in helping your young person succeed in school. The roles may change, but the goal is the same.
If you believe that when your student gets to middle school, your role is done, your answer is wrong.
Now I confess, I haven’t volunteered in the classroom, but there are other opportunities to get involved, so your young person knows you are still engaged in their education.
I had hoped to attend the Common Core Standards presentation with Los Alamos schools, but life dictated that my plans for the day were not going to happen my way.
I was thrilled to see that the presentation included enlightening parents to the fact that parent involvement in education is important.
You know sometimes you just need to hear the same message from another source. I hope parents took the information to heart.
