The Role of Parental Involvement

Parental involvement is one of the hallmarks of Indiana Connections Career Academy (INCC) that makes our program unique among those of other public schools. Parents are able to be engaged in the daily learning activities of their students, which not only helps students succeed but also instills in them the value of education. In addition to a strengthened parent-child relationship, this level of involvement in a student’s education offers many benefits, including higher rates of enrollment in postsecondary education, higher rates of high school graduation, and an improvement in test scores and grades. This is such an important role that we’ve given parents the valued title of Learning Coach.
