Parent education and involvement are important components of No Child Left Behind. These newsletters can be used as part of your school or district plan to help encourage parent involvement and educate the families you serve. Title 1 programs are required to provide parents with partnership opportunities for home and school. This requirement can be fulfilled through such things as parent workshops, handouts, and newsletters. The Parents in the Know newsletters are a great way to fulfill this requirement!

The newsletters provide schools and districts a very easy and economical way to bridge the gap that often exists between home and school.
