Six Types of Parent Involvement

Mavis G. Sanders, senior advisor of the National Network of Partnership Schools, which promotes Joyce Epstein's Six Types of Parent Involvement, gathered with representatives of several Ohio school districts in June 2010 to look at the efforts of Ohio schools to involve parents in their children's education.

The Following are audio presentations -- sometimes accompanied by matching PowerPoints -- by Sanders and Ohio school district representatives who are in various stages of implementing Epstein's parent-involvement model. You may need to adjust your computer's volume for best results.
