Welcome Parents and Guardians

We welcome our students' family and guardians to join us in preparing today’s students to take charge of America’s future. We recognize that raising children is a team effort, and that students benefit from an educational team involving our schools and you.

Research shows that the more parents get involved in their child’s education, the higher level of success that student can achieve. Parent engagement is potent as rocket fuel, and with it, there’s no telling how high your child can soar.

What’s the best way to get involved? The district’s Parent Outreach and Engagement Department offers programs and resources in the most effective ways to help your child academically.

Our schools welcome families, guardians and community members in hundreds of ways to pitch in, often with seemingly small tasks that can have far-reaching results. You can join parent-teacher associations, chaperone field trips, run a booth at a school carnival or read Dr. Seuss to primary students. Students benefit when professionals come speak at career fairs, and offer them challenging internships. You make an impact by joining any one of the district’s many advisory committees and councils, and help shape policy on everything from legislation to athletics.

Our district is committed to involving student families and the community. We’ve made it official policy, Parent Communications and Involvement Standards, to establish effective partnerships at every level in the educational process -- from our classrooms, to company boardrooms, to family living rooms.
