Parental Involvement Contracts - Adopted in 2001, this legislation encourages Michigan districts to develop and implement voluntary parental involvement contracts. The contracts are designed to encourage and facilitate parental involvement, establishing a learning partnership between parent, teacher and pupil. Participating parents, students and teachers agree to take a number of steps to involve parents in their children's education. Parents agree to review homework assignments and offer assistance when needed, ensure that the student gets to school each day on time and ready to learn and demonstrate interest in the pupilís well-being by attending school functions and making every effort to attend parent-teacher conferences. (Legislative Council, The Revised School Code (Excerpt), Act 451 of 1976, 380.1295)...
