Abstract

School personnel need a long and varied menu of ways families can contribute beyond the traditional options of things like helping in classrooms, reading to students, or doing paperwork in the office. The presence of more family members in school increases the ratio of adult to students. Almost regardless of what they do when at school, their presence – their willingness to interact with students while they are there – will make a difference.
