This study employed a mixed methods research design to investigate parental engagement at a Yukon high school. The purpose of this study was to explore what strategies this Yukon high school was employing to ensure parental involvement in their children's high school education what current strategies parents found most effective and what strategies parents would like to see to help them become more involved in their children's high school education. Parents were first invited to complete a survey and had the opportunity to opt-in to the interview portion of the study. Following the analyses of the quantitative and qualitative data the combined results of the study were used to prepare recommendations for the Yukon Department of Education and High School principals across the territory containing recommendations to assist schools to involve parents in a meaningful way, thus implementing Article 18 of the Education Act. --Leaf ii.
