According to Act 603 of 2003, administrators are required to have 3 hours annually of Parental Involvement Professional Development, while teachers are required to have 2 hours annually. To assist in completing this requirement, the Arkansas Department of Education (ADE) is providing five (5) new Parental Involvement Modules. A committee of educators assisted in the development of the new modules. The 2008-2009 Parent/Community Involvement modules are now on the Parental Involvement Section of the ADE website, http://arkansased.org/parental_involvement/index.html.

School personnel may use the modules in the manner most applicable. Each module includes speaker notes to guide the professional development, various activities, and video clips. An introductory overview of the modules is provided with specific directions and resources.

For additional information or assistance, please contact Dee Cox, Special Programs Section Coordinator, at 501-683-5300.
