Metadata[+] Show full item record
[ACCESS RESTRICTED TO THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI AT AUTHOR'S REQUEST.] It is now well-accepted in the literature that parent involvement is important to a myriad of student outcomes. Researchers have begun identifying some of the factors that influence whether or not parents are involved in their child 's schooling, focusing on both parent factors as well as variables in the school and community. Recent shifts to focus on the role of teachers and schools has informed changes in policy and legislature to support the development of family-school partnerships and parent involvement programs in schools. While implementing large-scale parent involvement programs like family-school partnerships is one way to effect change at the systemic level, ongoing professional development and support is necessary to ensure that parent involvement practices are integrated permanently. One potential method for providing this ongoing support is through teacher consultation and coaching. This study examined the feasibility, acceptability, and effectiveness of adapting the Classroom Check-Up, an existing classroom management consultation intervention based on motivational interviewing, as a model for increasing teachers' involvement efforts.
