Parent & Family Engagement

Everyone benefits when parents and families are involved in their children’s education. Not only do students do better in school, but parents feel more connected, as well. The Department of Parent and Family Engagement offers programs and services for students to improve their academic achievement.

We offer classes and trainings for parents and families to help them become academic partners for their children and to become more self-sufficient. We offer opportunities for the community to share their voice and partner to create stronger schools.


Our mission is to promote high impact student achievement through cutting edge Parental Involvement and Family Engagement Practices. With these innovative programs, families are empowered to become authentic partners with the school district; while receiving wrap around support that benefits the whole child.


Our vision is a transformed school district that recognizes parents as partners and fully embraces the involvement and engagement of these parents as an essential element in students’ ability to realize their full academic potential.
