The Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) in LFG Diamantina National High School has recorded low participation rate during homeroom meetings. This is evident in one PTA Meeting for a Grade 11 class wherein only 7 parents out of 21 attended despite the invitation given to each of them. Aside from general assembly some parents are not participative into school activities such as Brigada Eskwela where their involvement is highly needed. A total of ninety-three (93) parents participated in as respondents in this study: 41 from Grade 11 and 52 from Grade 12. This is the total number of SHS enrolment for this academic year. Mean and Pearson R is the main statistical used by the researcher. The researcher proved that IDENTIFIED FACTORS AFFECTING THE INTEREST OF SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL PARENTS IN ATTENDING SCHOOL ACTIVITIES: BASIS FOR SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT PLAN strongly affects the Work-Related Factors, Family-Related Factors, Socio-Economic Factors, Child-Related Factors, School-Related Factors. The interest and support gathered by the respondents regarding interest of SHS parents has something to do with their high or low scores in the questionnaire test.

With regards to the extension of the five factors it is strongly believed that in accomplishing satisfactory acceptance of the identified Factors Affecting the Interest of Senior High School Parents in Attending School Activities: Basis for School Improvement Plan the parents and teachers must have a smooth relationship  for them to accomplish responsibility in the effective way.
