helped us build a strong trust level. With this, the role of students will remain the same for them to come to school and learn. But, not only just learn course level concepts, but to expand their learning far pass the classroom. This will include but not be limited to the participation in service learning. Currie-Mueller, J. L., & Littlefield, R. S. noted that “Service-learning provides students with a unique opportunity to learn outside of the traditional classroom by engaging with an organization or the community” (2018). Moreover, Kronick, R. F., Cunningham, R., & Gourley, M. noted in their writing “Experiencing service-learning” that service learning is a form of “double-loop learning” which pushes students who may come up against obstacles to attempt a transformational change project to remove the barrier (2011); which will transform into their adulthood when they enter into the global economy because they already have a form of first hand knowledge that came with a hands-on experience. However, where the intricacy comes in is with the parental involvement. Parents will be required to do a lot more, but with the support of educators and the community around them; trust me we won’t leave them alone because it will be part of our role to consistently engage with the parents of our students.

Parent & Community Involvement Plan 8 1. Communicate - educators will engage with parents so that parents are able to communicate not only their needs, but what they believe their child's needs are. 2. Parent - educators and community organizations will help model what healthy parenting looks like so that parents are able to engage with their children in a positive and healthy manner. 3. Create opportunities to learn in the home - educators and community organizations will offer different resources and strategies that will promote learning in the home and allow for parents to assist their students with course level content. The most effective assistance a parent can add to the effective cohesiveness of their child(ren)s learning team is stability and structure in the home (Jeynes, W., 2011). 4. Collaborate within the community - parents will be given resources that are offered by community partners that can meet the outlying needs that their family has at little to no cost to ensure that there are not more barriers placed on the family. 5. Attend school sponsored activities - educators will plan activities that will push for parental involvement and coordinate the activities on days and times that fit parents schedule and/or offer multiple sessions. 6. Participate in Parent Advisory Committee - educators will push parents to become involved in the parent advisory committee, even if its at a bare minimum, because parents will be able to build support systems with other parents who may be facing the same struggles that they are facing.
