dc.description.abstract The level of parent engagement that is now being mandated by law has evolved from shallow and casual participation to a more deep and evaluative participation. National educational policies continue to emphasize the importance of establishing programs to involve families and practices to empower and engage families in the educational process (U.S. Department of Education, 2010). The purpose of this study was to examine how elementary school principals describe their understanding of and efforts toward building effective parent engagement at their schools. The literature review includes a discussion on the definitions of parent involvement and parent engagement, the benefits and barriers of parent engagement, and an overview of frameworks and models that categorize different types of parent engagement. Utilizing a qualitative design informed by a narrative inquiry data collection and a traditional coding data analysis as the methodology for this study, the researcher collected data through focus group and individual interviews using semi-structured interview protocols. The participants were elementary school principals from one school district in California. Findings from the research study showed that the participating site principals had experienced common perceptions, influential factors, barriers, and descriptions of ideal parent engagement programs related to establishing and implementing parent engagement on their elementary school campuses. Based on the findings of this study, it is suggested that educational leaders who are committed to increasing the quantity and quality of parent engagement at their school sites implement the nine policy and practice recommendations. Each recommendation is accompanied with strategies for implementation. en
