Various barriers affect the academic performance and educational attainment of some Latino students. Barriers include poverty, discrimination, educational inequity, immigration issues, language issues, and parental factors. Previous research identified family school involvement as a way to promote academic success and college attainment for Latino adolescents. The purpose of this thesis was to develop and seek funding for a family involvement program for Vista Charter Middle School located in Los Angeles, California. The goal of the program is to increase parent involvement for Vista Charter students to promote improved school performance and support for postsecondary education. Research on existing parent programs, their effects, and collaboration with school personnel were used to inform the development of this proposed program. Neither the actual submission and/or funding of this grant project were required for the successful completion of this project.
