Parent and Community Involvement in a College/Career–Ready Culture is the title of a briefing paper from the Texas Comprehensive Center.
It’s designed to provide potential answers to these questions:
What are some examples of underachieving schools that have involved parents and community partners to increase student achievement through building a focus on college and career readiness? How do they solicit community response and what contributions have parents/community members made to support a college and career readiness environment? What does the research say about this topic?
