Parent and Family Engagement'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 and family 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.
In addition to these workshops, trainings 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 to school staff is also provided at the request of the principal.
