ABSTRACT
Abstract: The purpose of this article is to present a summary of four studies of professional's attempts to involve parents of Indiana seventh-graders in selected components (counseling, food service, health education, and health services) of the coordinated school health program (CSHP). At least 95% of the respondents in each study indicated that parent involvement is important. However the findings indicate that more can be done to involve parents in decision-making; parent education programs; and at-home, student-parent learning activities. Barriers identified by respondents included lack of staff time and parents' jobs. Developing a parent involvement policy, educating parents about CSHP programs, and methods for student-parent learning activities were identified as common staff development needs.
