Parents must increase their involvement with their children’s school and education in the FAST program. It is an eight-week program in which the parents visit their school for two and a half hours at a time to learn about improving their children’s education.
The Families and Schools Together, or FAST, program has a variety of both activities between the parent and child and group activities. It is fast-paced and helps parents learn how to support their children by helping them with homework and getting more involved in their schools. It is especially beneficial for parents who feel isolated or stressed and are not sure how to help their children succeed. Parents who go through the FAST program often become better family leaders, improve communication between them and their children, and further help their children’s well-being.
