Parent Involvement   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Board of Trustees recognizes that parents/guardians are their students' first and most influential teachers and that continued parental involvement in the education of students contributes greatly to student achievement and conduct. Parents/guardians can directly affect academic success by reinforcing their students' motivation and commitment to education. The District shall include parent involvement strategies as a component of instructional planning.

Teachers and parents/guardians can better understand and meet student needs if they work together. All of our schools have a duty to communicate frequently with the home and to help parents/guardians develop skills and family management techniques which support classroom learning. Administrators and teachers should keep parents/guardians well informed about school expectations and tell them when and how they can assist their students in support of classroom learning activities. The Board encourages staff training in effective communication with the home.

The Board encourages parents/guardians to serve as volunteers in the schools and to attend student performances and school meetings.
