When your child enters school,
your child is entering a level of consciousness, which affects us all. 
Therefore, we all must be involved.


Knowledge is Power.
Involvement is Change.

GROUPS OF PARENTS FOR A BETTER MORE EFFECTIVE SCHOOL

            Welcome Parents...We need you...We can do this...WE can better our School...YES WE CAN!


About THE PARENT READ

1) The PARENT READ has been designed to increase and move groups of parents to get involved in the schooling and education of their children. Therefore, creating a more successful school. 

2) The objectives are to get groups of parents focused and have a way for them to air their concerns, comments, and issues in a constructive manner.  Plus, In My Shoes, Inc will support the parents with any and all available resources.  One goal has been achieved; create a place where concerned and involved parents can find, meet, interact with one another and share ideas and effective strategies.

3) Last year, In My Shoes, Inc. decided to focus on groups of parents in addition to individual parents. The reality is that there are schools with no organized PTSA or PTO and those parents are without knowledge and guidance.

HERE'S WHAT WE KNOW...

*SUCCESSFUL SCHOOLS HAVE HIGH PARENTAL INVOLVEMENT

AND ARE NOT BEING HEARD
*NOT ALL PARENTS KNOW HOW TO EFFECTIVELY BE INVOLVED IN THEIR CHILD'S EDUCATION
*MANY PARENTS LACK EFFECTIVE STRATEGIES TO HELP THEIR CHILD AT SCHOOL OR SUPPORT THEIR CHILD AT HOME
*TEACHER TURNOVER RATE IS HIGH, WHICH AFFECTS TEACHER EXPERIENCE IN THE CLASSROOM
* SCHOOLS AND PARENTS MAY NOT BE AT THERE BEST AT ALL TIMES
*INCREASED PARENTAL INVOLVEMENT INCREASES STUDENT SUCCESS
*SCHOOLS AND PARENTS MUST WORK TOGETHER


THE FOUR COMPONENTS OF THE PARENT READ

3) THE INTERACTIVE FORUM - Bringing together, sharing and communicating thoughts, ideas,
solutions, teachers, parents, etc

FAQ

Who can sign up?  Groups of Parents (PTSA, PTO, Organizations, etc.)

What if my PTSA or PTO is inactive? No problem.  In My Shoes, Inc. understands that there are schools without active Parent groups.  Therefore, you can start THE PARENT READ at your school for your parents.  Get at least 3 parents together and we will sign-up your group and activate a discussion forum for your school.

Can individual parents sign up?
Not quite.  However, once you have a group of at least 3 parents, we will sign you up and activate your interactive forum/discussion board within 48hrs.

How do I get other parents involved?  You are the force.  Tell parents.  However, In My Shoes, Inc will help you.  We will email you a brochure with your user id and password that you can download, copy, distribute or email to parents.

How do I contact inmyshoes.org to inform them that we are ready to sign-up?  Just email In My Shoes, Inc at info@inmyshoes.org.  Give your school's/organization's name and the email addresses of at least 3 members who have purchased the book.

Can we use our interactive forum to discuss other issues?  Yes, however all issues should revolve around schooling, education, parenting, etc.
