Four Tips to Help Your Child Succeed at School

Parents, families, educators and communities—there’s no better partnership to assure that all students, pre-K to high school, have the support and resources they need to succeed in school and life.

The research shows that students tend to earn higher grades, have better attendance, are more motivated and less likely to drop out whentheir families are involved in their education.

Here are four tips for what parents can do outside the classroom to help their child succeed:

  1. Create a home environment that encourages learning and schoolwork. Establish a daily routine of mealtimes with time for homework, chores and bedtime.
  2. Reinforce learning at home and show your child the skills they’re learning are applicable to everyday life. For example, if your child is learning about measurements, solicit help with a recipe.
  3. Model the habits of a lifelong learner. Let your child see you reading, writing and using technology.
  4. Become an advocate. Sign up to speak to the school board about resources your child’s school and schools in general need to be successful.
