Parental engagement in Prince George's County Public Schools has reached titanic proportions. In school year 2007-2008, when one measures the total number of parents who have participated in the core of what we call our parental engagement program; areas such as participation in a non-sports related event, classroom observations, participation in monthly parent workshops, and parent volunteers parental engagment in our schools is evident. For example, in the 2007-2008 school year there were a total of 89,000 parents involved in some aspect of our parental engagement program. However, the 2008-2009 school year represents the systemic growth we wanted in our parental engagement program. A review of parental involvement in our core programmatic areas reveals a 192% increase in parental activity when compared to the 2007-2008 school year. For the 2008-2009 school year 262,452 parents and significant adults in the lives our children participated in one of our core parental engagement program. The data for the 2008-2009 school year is not complete, as the final weeks of the school year has yet to calculated, thus we can expect an even greater increase from 2007-2008 and 2008-2009.
The numbers are in:
  • # of Men participating in non-sports related events at school (59,570)
  • # of Women participating in non-sports related events at school (108,741)
  • Total # of Parents participating in non-sports related events at school (168,311)
  • # of Classroom Observations (47,505)
