The purpose of this study is to describe parent perceptions of school involvement with their ninth grade students. The tool used to measure involvement was the Parent Involvement Survey created by the researcher. The parents completed the survey electronically via Survey Monkey or using a paper and pen version sent home. This was a descriptive study, using the data collected in the survey to determine different levels of parent involvement by analyzing responses to the given prompts. Research in the area of successful types of involvement should continue given the various forms of parental involvement being used successfully in different schools across the United States.
