Parents can be involved in school communities in a variety of ways. Such contribution is valuable whether or not it is directly related to learning.
Participating provides families with opportunities to be involved in the life of the school and support learning in ways that suit their particular interests, expertise and capacity to give time.
Schools can provide access for parents through inviting participation in special events, excursions, working bees, classroom assistance, regular participation through rostered duties, involvement in committees, membership of school boards, etc.
Participation may take a variety of forms including volunteering, supporting, attendance at meetings, parent–teacher interviews and forums, responding to surveys, or discussions, as audience, as experts, and may be undertaken individually or as groups.
