Parent involvement is crucial for student success in the K-12 school environment. Polices are in place to promote and encourage minority parent involvement in schools. It is still unclear how to increase minority parental involvement at the intermediate school level. The goal of this study is to determine the preferred involvement type of minority parents in a New Jersey suburban intermediate school. The study is quantitative in nature and explores the six parent involvement types according to Joyce Epstein (2001). The analysis of the data will determine if there is a preferred involvement type among the minority participants. This study concluded that minority parents prefer the parent involvement type “learning at home”. The parent involvement type “parenting” was the second preferred type.
