Parent Engagement – for Schools & Teachers

Welcome to the Queensland Independent Schools Parents Network parent engagement portal. In this section schools and teachers will find information and resources to help them develop successful parental engagement programs within their school communities.

The QIS Parents Network has compiled a range of Australian and international articles and tools to help answer school questions around: What is parent engagement? What does the research on parent engagement tell us? Why does it matter for principals and teachers? How do students and their families benefit? What things can we implement at our school? How will we measure our success?

There’s a wealth of research and tools available to support schools to develop or enhance their engagement programs and activities with parents. Follow the links to download tools that we hope will support your work. Let us know if you find other information that we can upload here to share with others.
