On Monday, Indiana State Superintendent of Public Instruction Dr. Tony Bennett and Indiana Pacers Center Jeff Foster launched Indiana’s Parent Pledge to motivate parents to get more involved in student academics and enhance collaboration between parents and teachers. The Indiana Department of Education is honoring all 80 schools that participated in the pledge and hope it will become a school trend that will spread even further across the state.
The pledge states that upon signing, the parent or guardian will be committed to the academic and career success of the child and treat knowledge as a priority in the home. In order to show their dedication, the parent agrees to enforce some principles in their home such as: reading with their child or encouraging independent reading daily; completing homework and helping when needed; bringing a well-rested student to school on time; and encouraging their child to dream big, among others.
LifeBound will be continuing parent sessions on October 18, which will focus on Coaching Skills for Parents: Setting Expectations and Holding Student Accountable. For more information, contact us at LifeBound.com.
