Working in Partnerhship 

A strong parent-teacher partnership benefits class’ motivation, behavior and grades. It creates a positive learning environment for every student. PIQE is committed to supporting our teachers and schools in creating school environments for all to learn, grow and thrive.


In collaboration with the Stanford Research Institute (SRI), PIQE designed a six-hour teacher workshop to help teachers and counselors review current research on parent involvement and its impact on student achievement. The workshop helps teachers and counselors develop skills to increase meaningful parent involvement. They reflect on the role of the parent and the role of the teacher: same world, different universe. There is a conversation about the many assumptions that can misrepresent the parent-teacher relationship, and the workshop concludes by designing a school-site Parent Involvement Action Plan.
