The highest level of parent’s involvement on Parent’s Self-Efficacy is their efforts to help my child learn are successfuT’ (M=4.70; SD=0.806); the highest level of parent’s involvement on School-Focused Invitation is '’“'When my child first enrolled in this school, we were much welcomed' (M=4.97; SD=0.733). It is also found that the highest level of parent’s involvement on empowerment-focused invitations is on “this school does a good job o f letting me know about ways I can help out in sch o o l (M=4.93; SD=0.650). The highest level of parent’s involvement on Communication-Focused Invitation is on “This school does a good job o f letting me know about the school rules and policies’ (M=4.73; SD=0.809). In term of parent’s responsibility towards child succeeds, “Communicate with my child’s teacher regularly" gives the highest mean (M=4.95; SD=858) .
