Guidebook_Cover A Message from the Council of
Ontario Directors of Education

When we look closely at patterns of success for our students, there is ample evidence that achievement and positive school adjustment come from the support and guidance of parents and those who guide the learning and attitudes of our young people.

As school system leaders, the members of the Council of Ontario Directors of Education are very aware of the power and benefits of parent engagement. Thus, we are pleased to provide this Planning Parent Engagement Guidebook to accompany the Parent Tool Kit.

In this Guidebook you will find examples of useful exercises and proven techniques for involvement and support.

The success of our students is the core goal. The support of parents and the community is a very significant asset needed to achieve that success.

A Message from the Council of
Ontario Directors of Education
Tool_Kit

We are pleased to provide this Tool Kit for Parents and hope that it will be shared widely with all those who guide and teach our children. It is important to support the learning process at home.

There is evidence every day that the student who gets support and help at home is more successful at school.

In developing this Tool Kit, there was considerable contact with families and community members who shared the techniques they have been using to work with children and youth. These good ideas are included here and will help parents to engage in the learning of their own children.

It is our hope that you will find useful tips and suggestions in this Kit and that these ideas will lead to what you will find useful for your family.

The partnership of parents and teachers is a powerful one. When it works positively, students feel good about school. This outcome is so important to our young people.

The Council of Ontario Directors of Education congratulates all parents for working with Ontario schools to improve the success of students at every level.
