Parent involvement and engagement is a critical component of STEAM Through Stars IV. Family engagement is one of the most effective early intervention strategies. Research by the Harvard Family Research Project (2007) found that family involvement has a direct, positive effect on children's achievement, and is the most accurate predictor of a student's success in school. Consequently, our program will engage parent participation through on-going parent activities and meetings and adult literacy and educational skills events and the participation in Parent Academy meetings that will be held monthly.
