Statistics have found that students whose parents are involved in their education are most likely to earn higher grades and test scores, better attendance, healthier social skills, and higher graduation rates. Okonta Solutions' Parent Alliance is designed to encourage parents to get more connected in the educational process of their child. The workshops are tailored towards providing parents with current and resourceful information such as “Planning and Paying for College,” “Know Your Rights as Parents in the Schools,” “Chronic Absenteeism,” "The Option of Homeschooling," and more.
