We welcome families and guardians to join us in preparing today’s students to take charge of America’s future. We recognize that raising children is a team effort, and that students benefit from an educational team involving our schools, our community and you.
Research shows that the more parents get involved in their child’s education, the higher level of success that student can achieve. Parent engagement is potent as rocket fuel, and with it, there’s no telling how high your child can soar.
What’s the best way to get involved? Talk to your child's teacher and school office to see what you can do. In addition, the district’s Parent Outreach and Engagement Department offers dozens of free programs and extensive resources -- in multiple languages -- on the most effective ways to help your child academically.
Our schools welcome you to pitch in, often with seemingly small tasks that can have far-reaching results. You can join our parent-teacher associations (PTA), school foundation, band boosters, athletic boosters, ELAC (English Learner Advisory Committee), the School Site Council. You can chaperone field trips, help out during our Grad Night, help out in classrooms and for special events like Career Day.
You can make an impact by joining any one of the district’s many advisory committees and councils, and help shape policy on everything from legislation to athletics.
Our district is committed to involving student families and the community. We’ve made it official policy, Parent Communications and Involvement Standards, to establish effective partnerships at every level in the educational process -- from our classrooms, to company boardrooms, to family living rooms
