The purpose of this action research project was to examine teacher-controlled Web pages and how they can impact school/home communication. Thirty-three eighth grade parents voluntarily responded to a survey about the communication practices between the eighth grade teachers and eighth grade parents in the Avoca-Hancock-Shelby-Tennant School District.A teacher-controlled Web page was set up and put into practice for a one and one-half month period. Parents and students were encouraged to access the Web page for daily assignment updates and special announcements.
At the end of the one and one-half month period, the parents were surveyed again and the results indicated that the majority of parents felt that the Web page successfully helped communication between the school and their homes. Parents indicated that the Web page should be improved and implemented again during the following school year.
