NCLB Action Briefs Parental Involvement - This paper examines Section 1118, Title I of the No Child Left Behind Act, the only section devoted solely to parental involvement.

The paper discusses the text of Section 1118, potential challenges, action opportunities for community and parent leaders, a parental involvement checklist and tips for developing a school family involvement policy. Also included are sections on keys to success, and a list of relevant resources on page 15. (Public Education Network and National Coalition for Parent Involvement in Education, April 2004)...
