by Hernandez, Greta, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2012, 86; 1517643
Abstract (Summary)

Family Involvement has been shown to benefit students, families, schools and communities. The purpose of this project was to design a family involvement program, to identify potential funding sources, and to complete a grant application to fund the program for William Northrup Elementary. The proposed program components are family outreach, parent workshops, professional development for school and staff, and family-friendly socials. Multiple strategies are incorporated to increase the likelihood the low-income and culturally diverse families will participate in the program. The program was developed based on a thorough review of the literature. Implications for social work practice are addressed. The actual submission and/or funding for this project was not required for successful project completion.
