There are many ways that a school can improve communication (LaBahn, 2007) such as, informing families about routines and providing them with specific ways they can help at home provides parents with structured opportunities to participate in their child's education (Patrikakou, 2008). The most important thing a parent can do for their child education is stay in contact with the teacher. The teacher can keep parents regularly informed about student progress, school requirements, and school events (Wherry, 2009). The teacher is the bridge between the parent and the child education; therefore, parents look to the school for answers about learning issues (Wherry, 2009). That bridge will help parents stay connected with the child's teacher, enable them access to monitor classroom activities, and correspond with the efforts of the teachers.A study conducted by Berthelsen & Walker (2008) explained that five items were used to assess parents' contact with their child's school program. A number of activities in which parents may have participated at their child's school were identified to which parents could give a yes/no response: "During this school term, have you â€¦"-"contacted child's teacher"; "visited child's class"; "talked to parents of other children at the school"; "attended a school event in which your child participated"; and "volunteered in the classroom or helped with a class excursion". Engagement in three or more activities was indicated by 76% of parents. Parents were most likely to have talked with other parents at the school (92%) or visited the child's classroom (87%), and least likely to have volunteered in the classroom or helped with a class excursion (48%).
