Parent involvement is the most accurate predictor of a child’s success in school. Many parents want to be involved in their child’s education, but simply don’t know how.

These three steps can make a big difference:

  • Value learning. Ask your child about what he/she is learning at school. Encourage your child to be curious and ask questions.
  • Have high expectations. Let your child know that you expect them to do their best and that you’ll always be there to support them.
  • Become involved with your child’s school. Communicate regularly with your child’s teacher and stay up to date with your child’s progress.

ScootPad provides a great way to get involved in your child’s education. When you sign-in to Scootpad, you are able to see detailed data on your dashboard about your child’s progress.

However you choose to become involved, make sure your child knows how much you value his/her education.
