Abstract

This study is meant to focus discussions about the importance of the involvement of immigrant parents in respect to student academics. In this study I intend to make evident a relationship between parental involvement and student academics, after which I will draw in a conclusion of the resources utilized by my community at the elementary and middle schools. I’m conducting my research study starting at elementary school and running through middle school. I’m eliminating the high school period because of their unique parental involvement complexities which share little constraints and outcomes with the lower levels. To build my study, I research several different aspects of parental involvement dealing with elementary and middle school: student impact readiness, immigrant parent perceptions, challenging verses letting them go. I chose nine peer reviewed resource studies because of their supportive research studies that relates to my project goals; of those, I narrowed it down to four that reflects positively in support of evidences. At the end of this paper I included an abstract of each study to further justify their selection, see appendix A. To draw a conclusion of the resources utilized in my community, I conducted one interview with an administrator that has experience working with immigrant families in our educational system; see appendix B for interview questionnaire.
