Abstract

The Positive Approach in Parental Communication (PAPC) Strategic Model is a new technique designed by the researcher to establish a strong rapport between the parent and the teacher. They provide positive feedbacks to the parents about their child that would eventually lead to the learner’s good academic standing. The traditional parental communication method and the Positive Approach in Parental Communication (PAPC) Strategic Model were employed to 10 Grade 11 Balik-Aral learners who finished at least the first grading period in the previous year before they dropped out. This study evaluated the effectiveness of a treatment which was the traditional parental communication for the controlled group, and the Positive Approach in Parental Communication (PAPC) Strategic Model for the experimental group. After analyzing the data, it was observed that both traditional parental communication method and the Positive Approach in Parental Communication (PAPC) Strategic Model increased the academic proficiency level of the Balik-Aral learners. However, Parental Communication (PAPC) Strategic Model achieved a higher mean than the traditional parental communication method. Therefore, it was recommended to establish policies and programs that would strengthen the involvement of parents for the academic proficiency of the learners.
