Abstract

Parental involvement in school is very important. Today, society's expectations of the education system have increased. Therefore, the educational system is not only responsible for teaching and transferring educational materials in the minds of learners, and for the success of educational programs, policymakers in the education system must provide the grounds for parental participation to promote student growth. If there is no logical, participatory and two-way communication between the three institutions of home, school and society, their function will be separate from each other.  This is a problem that affects many families today. The current situation of any society is the result of yesterday's learning of people at home and school, and the future situation of any society is the result of investments that are made today on the knowledge of people at home, school and society. The important principle of wisdom is that the future cannot be found, it can be made.  If you are looking to build the future of the community, build a bridge between home and school and allow this bridge to cross the community. One of the main problems of our country is the lack of close and intimate communication between school and families. Due to the weakness in the structures and system of communication between the school and the family and the lack of awareness of parents about their decisive role and destiny in the scientific and spiritual development of their children and lack of knowledge of legal capacities created to interact with the school is located. The aim of this study was to investigate the effective components in parental participation in a qualitative manner and with a content analysis method based on inductive approach (Atrid-Sterling).
