Whether you are a parent, a teacher, a taxpayer or even a student, there are many ways to get involved and help improve public education in Utah.
Contact your local school to ask about ways you can volunteer.
While many factors contribute to a child’s success in school, research shows parental involvement is one of the most significant. Because of the critical role both parents and teachers play in a child’s education, the UEA asked a few of Utah’s most experienced teachers to share tips on how parents can support the efforts of teachers in the classroom.
Like it or not, much of what happens in Utah classrooms is out of the control of teachers, parents and school administrators. Decisions about everything from curriculum and class size to budgets for classroom supplies are made by elected officials and appointed policy makers. You can make a difference by attending your party caucus meeting, voting in the primary and general elections, attending school board meetings and following activities of the Utah State Legislature.
