NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Governor Haslam has signed into law a bill legislators hope will boost parent-student-school involvement.

Under the proposal, parents would agree to - at a minimum - help with homework, sign report cards, attend school functions, and show up for parent-teacher conferences.

A second measure advancing in the Legislature proposes so-called parent report cards. That proposal is awaiting floor votes in both chambers.

Tennessee PTA President Karen Davis is opposed to both measures.
