• Welcome to the Office of Parent Engagement

    There are so many possibilities of what “WE CAN DO TOGETHER”, as we work with one another on the academic success for our students. Parent engagement should be systemic, integrated and sustained. The District’s Strategic Plan goals and objectives for family engagement are aligned with the National Standards for Family-School Partnerships.

    These standards are key elements needed for an effective and vibrant parent engagement program and provide the framework for what our District, schools, parents, and communities can do to build family-school partnerships for student success:

    1. Welcome all families – All are value stakeholders 

    2. Communicate effectively – Verbally, and use of technology 

    3. Support student success – Continuous collaboration

    4. Speak up for every child – Advocate for students

    5. Share power – Equal partners in decision-making

    6. Collaborate with community – Partner with community organizations 

    The Office of Parent Engagement Mission is to REACH parents:
    Respond to the needs of parents
    Encourage partnership
    Advocate on the behalf of parents
    Collaborate with community partners
    Help parents help their students to academic success
