    A critical component of a student’s success in school is dependent on what and how they learn at home. The Toolkit for Parents and Families is a collection of materials and resources that will help parents and families understand how to help your child graduate from high school ready for college and careers. We encourage parents and families to use these tools in conjunction with resources and information you receive from your child’s school and teachers. We will continue to build upon this toolkit as we receive feedback from educators and families.


    In the Toolkit for Parents and Families:

    The Parents’ Guide to Student Success was developed by the National Parent Teacher Association® (PTA)  in response to the Common Core Standards.

    The National PTA® created the guides in English and Spanish for grades K-8 and two for grades 9-12 (one for English language arts/literacy and one for mathematics).
