Family Engagement

  • Frequent Communication. We keep parents informed about schoolwide events and activities as well as their children’s progress. We communicate with families by phone, email, newsletters, social media, and home visits.
  • Academic Support. We help families monitor and support their children’s learning at home. Our academic partnering models include strategies for sharing student data, establishing student goals, and providing families with activities to practice foundational skills with their children at home.
  • Family Events. We invite families to participate in several districtwide events throughout the school year, including the arts recital, a service learning project, and the science fair. Individual campuses also have their own family celebrations, events, and performances.
  • We also welcome parent volunteers. Please contact your campus to find out about opportunities, such as helping in classrooms and chaperoning field trips.
