    National PTA® created the Parents' Guide to Student Success in both English and Spanish to help parents with students in grades K-8 and grades 9-12 (one for English language arts/literacy and one for mathematics).


    The Guide includes:

    • Key items that children should be learning in English language arts and mathematics in each grade.
    • Activities that parents can do at home to support their child's learning.
    • Methods for helping parents build stronger relationships with their child's teacher.
    • Tips for planning for college and career (high school only)
