Family Involvement Program

The Family Involvement Program's goal is to bridge the gap between school and home while extending the learning process for all children.  The program meets this goal by conducting district-wide workshops and conferences for parents, adult family members and significant others throughout the school year.  These workshops provide information and resources, which enhance the knowledge base of parental involvement while giving parents the opportunity to participate in meaningful communication involving student academic achievement. 

The Family Involvement Program provides the following workshops and events:

  • Title I Parent Leaders Training
  • Conversational Spanish Classes
  • Can We Talk Seminars
  • Reading, Math & Science Workshops
  • Parent Information Fair
  • Parent Camp
  • Parent Focus Group
  • New Teacher Workshops

In addition to these workshops, two in-services are conducted to assist the school-site volunteer coordinator and principal designee in keeping accurate records on parent volunteers and completing the parental involvement monthly report.  Professional development is also provided at the request of the principal.

The Family Involvement Program also has a Resource Center located at the Davis Center in Room 212 that provides resources to parents and teachers. These materials can be utilized at the center as well as checked out.
