This study documents the effects of at-home parental involvement on average attendance in a four-year-old kindergarten classroom. Previous research suggests that there are six main factors that affect attendance. One such factor is parental involvement with homework assignments. An action research was designed to increase student attendance averages by implementing a weekly parent-child homework activity. The results of the action research suggest that there is no correlation between parental involvement with homework and attendance. However, future research is recommended by the researcher in part to unforeseen and uncontrolled variables that may have affected this study's results.
