Abstract

Parental Involvement has continually been an important piece in the development of student learning and success in school. The increasing availability and access to the Internet provides schools with an effective way to communicate with the community via school web pages. This presentation illustrates the implementation process of a web-base communication system in a high school. The challenge of this pilot was to convince the parental population of the advantages of this type of communication, and the value that timely information could provide for them in their quest to be effective parents and provide an adequate support system for their students. The documentation also outlines the promises and pitfalls encountered in the infusion process of this new technology.
