Schools and parent organizations are always looking, and often struggle, for more parents to attend events and participate. Some schools are now providing incentives to parents, saying they’re simply doing what it takes to get families involved when they might not otherwise consider. Incentives vary from offering a small $5 gift card to larger items such as meals or used computers.
