Parent Involvement

February 21, 2018

Research shows...

how well a child does in school depends a great deal upon how parents get involved in the educational process! Your input at Auburn Schools is greatly appreciated and we value your willingness to partner with us to help students be successful.

How You Can Get Involved:

  • Participate in Auburn School District conferences scheduled each year.
  • Use Auburn School District Website and links @Auburn.k12/il.us
  • Keep in contact with your child's teacher through telephone conversations, e-mail, or letters to/from home.
  • Participate in school-based events that are intended for attendance of all families (open houses, music programs, grade level presentations).
  • Serve as a role model, showing your child that you support his/her education and are aware of his/her progress in school.
  • Support your school's extracurricular activities.
  • Keep your child's teacher informed about events in your child's life that may affect his/her performance in school.
  • Discuss other ideas for parent involvement with your child's teacher and parent organization (PTO).

Parent Involvement Policy:

Parent involvement is a key component for the success of the Title I Reading Program.  Communication between the parent, the classroom teacher, and the Title I Teacher is vital to the success of this program. Parent involvement opportunities include:

  • District, School, and Teacher Webpages
  • Take-Home Activities

As a parent your support and responsibility will be to make sure that your child attends school regularly.

How to instill a LOVE for reading in your child:

  • Read aloud to your child daily.  Even older children like to be read to.
  • Visit the library often or take your child to the bookstore to purchase his/her very own book!  Gift cards for gifts are a great idea!
  • Allow your child to read favorite books over and over.
  • Let your child choose what they want to read.
  • Expose them to different genres.  Make sure they have access to interesting, engaging books. 
  • Help your child find a favorite author and read several of his/her books.
  • Talk about books with your child.  What is your favorite part/character?  What did you learn from the book?  
  • Set the example by reading yourself.  If your child sees you reading for enjoyment, they will want to read also!
  • Incorporate technology into reading.  Children can read stories on Kindles, phones, and/or computers.  
  • Create a cozy, inviting place to read at home.
  • Start a reading routine.  Read at the same time in the same place each day. 
  • Give books as gifts. Show children books are special items that should be treasured.  
  • Encourage your child to read newspapers, magazines, and/or comic books.
