Kane school administrators are planning to develop and implement strategies to increase parent involvement in the education of their children.
One of the proposed initiatives calls for the creation of a "parent advisory committee" to work with school officials.
Ideas for increasing parent involvement in Kane schools were discussed Thursday at a meeting of the school board's Curriculum Committee.
Dr. Maryann Anderson, superintendent of the Kane Area School District, said "we're trying to create more interest" among parents.
The school district next spring plans to "assess" the amount of "parent engagement as the result of specific activities."
