Parent Advisory Council
Parent Advisory Council (PAC) and Parental Involvement
Parental involvement is an integral part of all Title I programs, including the Migrant Education Program (MEP). Research shows that parents play a significant role in the academic achievement of their children (Henderson and Mapp, 2002). Therefore, it is important for parents and schools to develop partnerships and build an ongoing dialogue to improve student achievement. In order to receive MEP funds, school districts must implement programs, activities, and procedures that effectively involve migrant parents.
Studies have found that students with involved parents are more likely to:
- Earn high grades and test scores, and enroll in higher-level programs
- Pass their classes, earn credits, and be promoted
- Attend school regularly
- Graduate and go on to postsecondary education
- Q: May MEP funds be spent for childcare, transportation and food/refreshments provided during parent meetings or training?
