Parent Engagement in Education

After participating in Learning Community classes, South Omaha parents feel more comfortable
helping their children with school work. They also build relationships with teachers and get
involved in their local schools.

WHY THIS MATTERS: Parent engagement is closely linked to better student behavior, higher achievement and better social skills.
