Family and Community Outreach Coordinators
Family and Community Outreach Coordinators serve as liaisons between their school and parents. Feel free to contact your Family and Community Outreach Coordinator, Toni Edwards at Coburn Elementary School to get involved, express concern, volunteer or give suggestions.
How parents can get involved
Research shows that children whose parents are involved in their education have more success in schools. This includes involvement both in school and out.
The district recognizes parents/guardians as valued partners in the education of their children. The quality of education is greatly enhanced when parents become involved.
We are strongly committed to facilitating cooperative partnerships with all parents to improve the educational achievements of all students. Staff members are expected to make ongoing efforts to welcome, include, inform and listen to parents.
Please contact your child's school to ask how you can get involved. Times and dates of Parent Faculty Organization meetings, Building Planning Team meetings and parent information sessions are listed in the district calendar and published in school newsletters as well the District Dialogue.
Several district organizations and committees are open to interested parents. For information about any of these committees, call your school principal.
Each school building has a parent organization, such as a PFO or SPFO. These groups discuss important school issues, hold fundraisers and sponsor school activities.
Meeting dates are on the district calendar.
Building Planning Teams
Building Planning Teams include teachers, administrators and parents. These groups review and design strategies to improve student performance.
School Improvement Plan Committees
Schools designated as Schools in Need of Improvement must have a School Improvement Plan to improve their scores. A committee of educators and parents is responsible for this plan.
One of the most important ways to get involved is attending parent-teacher conferences. These are an opportunity to learn about your child's strengths and weaknesses, and what you can do to help your child improve.
