Student learning does not occur in a vacuum. In fact, the interplay of a child’s abilities, his or her school environment, and home and community factors help create the lens through which children envision their present and future success.
Whether a child lives with two parents, a grandmother, aunt, uncle, or a foster parent, research shows that encouragement, activities and information exchanged between school and home matter. Through its programs and curricula, Preservation LINK is committed to supporting and highlighting the vital role parents and other family members play in nurturing a child's healthy development.
Preservation LINK encourages parental involvement by:
•Gathering family data that helps us better tap into children’s individual strengths
•Engaging parents through surveys and children’s take-home assignments
•Inviting parents to culminating events featuring the works of their children
