Proclamation for Parent Engagement Month

Whereas consistent, positive and convincing studies have shown that the number one factor in individual student success in school is parent involvement; and
Whereas it is found when schools, families, and community groups work together to support learning, children tend to do better in school, stay in school longer and enjoy school more; and
Whereas Parent Engagement in a child’s educational experience assures better cooperation between student and teacher and home and school; and
Whereas Parent Involvement in the lives of their children decreases the chance of risky behavior; and
Whereas additional studies also show that students of involved parents earn higher grades and test scores, enroll in higher-level programs, are promoted more often, attend school more regularly, have better social skills, show improved behavior and adapt well to school; and
Whereas Students supported by the participation and engagement of their parents are more likely to graduate and go on to postsecondary education; and
Whereas, the success of children who have parents who are engaged in their lives continue into their adult life; and
Whereas the vision of Utah PTA for education is to help all children and youth reach their full potential and assure the involvement of parents in the education of their children;
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that January 2011 is hereby proclaimed UTAH PTA PARENT ENGAGEMENT MONTH in the state of Utah, to encourage all parents to increase their participation, commitment, and involvement in the education of their children and youth and to encourage further engagement at the schools by joining their local PTA and participating at their school.
