Family Engagement

Family Engagement

 Research shows that student achievement increases when families are involved in their child's education process. Some ways for families and caregivers to get involved are:

  • Make sure your child gets to school on time.

  • Attend a Student Advisory Council (SAC) meeting at your child's school. This committee is open to all parents, teachers, and community members. Schools are looking for your input as parents. Please consider coming to your school's SAC meeting. Translators are available (when feasible) with advance request.

  • Join the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) at your child's school This group is open to all parents.

  • Read with or to your child.  For older students, ask what they are reading about.

  • Assist your child with homework.

  • Join the ESOL Parent Leadership Committee (ESOL PLC). For information, click here: Open to all ESOL parents. This group helps to meet the needs of the ESOL population.  Russian and Spanish translators in attendance for parents.

  • Join Grandparents Parenting Again – Open to Grandparents that are now parenting their grandchildren (click here for information).  This group addresses the unique circumstances grandparents parenting again encounter and offers the support and resources from guest speakers and other grandparents in similar situations.

  • Attend your child's parent-teacher conferences and any guidance meetings.

  • Parents of students that attend a Title I school can use the Parent Resource Centers at the Title I schools.  They have manipulatives, literature, and games for check out that can help reinforce learning at home.

  • Talk to your child about their day.  Inquire about both social and academic issues.

  • Attend school events.  Check the school calendars and/or newsletters that come home for information about upcoming events.

  • Communicate with your child’s school.  We value your input!

  • Become a school volunteer.

We are a team!  Together with strong school–home relationships, we can help strengthen the academic success of our students!
