Eric.ed.gov – Parent Engagement Representatives (PERS), 2016-2017. Research Educational Program Report

The Houston Independent School District’s (HISD) Family and Community Empowerment (FACE) Department implements strategies that are designed to improve communication between parents and the school community, enhance parent/teacher conference participation, increase parent awareness of district and community programs and resources; and ultimately, increase student achievement and attendance. Over the past two years, FACE has helped schools build their capacity to reach parents through its Parent Engagement Representatives (PERs) program. The PERs program was funded by the Title I Parent Involvement grant. Key findings include: (1) During the 2016-2017 academic year, PERs documented 3,669 hours conducting parent involvement activities, which reflected a substantial increase in documented time from the 2015-2016 academic year of 1,468 hours; (2) There were statistically significant increases in the mean scale scores on the English reading STAAR for a paired sample of PERs students who were administered the test as fourth, fifth, seventh, and eighth graders in 2017 and tested at the preceding grade level in 2016; (3) There were statistically significant increases in the mean scale scores on the English math STAAR for a paired sample of PERs students who were administered the test as fourth, fifth, seventh, and eighth graders in 2017 and tested at the preceding grade level in 2016; (4) School attendance analyses showed that the mean number of days in attendance for students at PERs schools remained stable from 2015-2016 to 2016-2017 (158). While there was a slight increase in the mean number of excused (2 vs. 3) absences, there was also a slight increase in the mean number of unexcused (5 vs. 6) and total absences (7 vs. 9) for students at PERs schools over this time period.

Jeg er ansat som adjunkt hos Læreruddannelsen i Jelling, hvor jeg underviser i matematik, specialiseringsmodulet teknologiforståelse, praktik m.m. Jeg har tidligere været ansat som pædagogisk konsulent i matematik og tysk hos UCL ved Center for Undervisningsmidler (CFU) i Vejle og lærer i udskolingen (7.-9. klasse) på Lyshøjskolen i Kolding. Jeg er ejer af og driver bl.a. hjemmesiderne www.lærklokken.dk og www.iundervisning.dk, ggbkursus.dk og er tidligere fagredaktør på matematik på emu.dk. Jeg går ind for, at læring skal være let tilgængelig og i størst mulig omfang gratis at benytte.
