Notes

Abstract: In this research project, the school counselor and the student teacher investigated the relationship between African American parent volunteer involvement and student reading scores. The parents involved were chosen based on their child's Scholastic Reading Inventory (SRI) score, which were low in all cases. The parents received a newsletter each month that contained information on ways to help their child at home and school and how they could volunteer at school. Before the study began, the parents were not required to volunteer. The study hypothesis was that parent involvement would help the children academically. During the study, the parents were required to volunteer at least three times during a given time period. Volunteerism was tracked using the electronic sign-in system in the school office. By that the end of the school term, the student's reading SRI scores showed improvement in all cases.
