Whether they are just starting elementary school or are getting ready to graduate high school, every parent wants their child to have the knowledge they need to be successful in the future. However, sometimes it can be difficult to keep track of everything your child needs to know. That’s why National PTA created the Parents’ Guides to Student Success.

Developed by teachers, parents and education experts, the guides provide clear and consistent expectations for what students should be learning in English, language arts/literacy and mathematics during grades K-8 and high school. You can use these guides to keep track of your child’s progress and ensure that they are prepared for the following school year and their future college and career ambitions.

National PTA’s Parents’ Guides to Student Success are an easy way to keep your kid on track. Not only do the guides serve as easy-to-use handbooks for your child’s education, but they also offer activities you can use to keep them engaged academically.

There are even two versions of each guide for your convenience! If you are looking for a quick overview of necessary curriculum, take a look at the two page guides. If you are want something a bit more in depth, check out the four page guides.

For Spanish-speaking families, National PTA has created Spanish versions of both the two page guides and the four page guides.

Research shows that family engagement promotes student success. Students with involved parents are more likely to:

  • Earn higher grades and pass their classes,
  • Attend school regularly and have better social skills,
  • Go on to postsecondary education

The National PTA Parents’ Guides to Student Success are a great way to get involved in your child’s education.
