Outreach to parents and the community also plays a large role in the PBR program. During the two-week program, parents and other family members are involved in “Taking Home the Law” lessons. Parental involvement in any education setting is strongly recommended and PBR has included a parental component to encourage parents to be active in their children’s education.
A letter to parents is sent home with students to introduce them to the program and to encourage their involvement. Teachers are provided with a list of ideas for parental involvement ideas and a response form for parental feedback and suggestions.
