Extractions: Program Office: Daisy Greenfield U.S. Department of Education Announces $11. 7 Million in Support for Parent Education Resource Centers in 19 States U.S. Secretary of Education Rod Paige today announced that nonprofit organizations working with school districts in 19 states will receive a total of $11.7 million to set up local parent information and resource centers in communities across the nation. "If we are to leave no child behind and offer each child a high-quality education, parents must be actively involved in their child's learning," Paige said. "We know that early childhood learning activities can help to close the achievement gap between economically disadvantaged children and their peers. To help all of our children read and learn well these centers can help share this and other valuable information with parents and teachers." States and territories that received new grants to establish centers include Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Guam, Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nebraska, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Washington
Extractions: Parent Information and Resource Centers Background The number of Parent Centers has grown as increased appropriations have been made available since the initial funding in fiscal year (FY) 1995 of $10,000,000. The FY 1998 appropriation of $25,000,000 will enable the Department to achieve the statutory goal of funding one center in every State, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the outlying areas. Services Provided The Parent Centers use a variety of strategies for outreach and information sharing, including web-sites, mass mailings, toll-free phone numbers, and audio and video broadcasts. However, each center designs its core programs and services to emphasize local priorities and conditions and existing service structures in the State. For example: The Mississippi Forum on Children and Families is providing intensive parental information and support services to low-income parents through a mobile resource unit that travels to work sites in five counties. The mobile unit uses trained parent educators to provide valuable resources and support improved parenting skills for many who might otherwise not be reached. The parent educator provides access to PAT training and parent education about educationally appropriate materials and games, teaches parenting skills, provides tips for helping with homework, and identifies community resources as appropriate to meet parents' needs.
