This study is concerned with how parental involvement affects student achievement since parental involvement has implications for student achievement, behavior, and motivation. Educators realize there are obstacles that prevent parents from being involved. Since there is a direct relationship between parental involvement and academic success, this study examined how to increase parental involvement. This can be accomplished through open, consistent, clear, and positive communication with parents, teachers and administrators. This communication helps to establish a positive relationship in which everyone works as a team to ensure that the best interests of the students are being met.
