Mrs. Pamela Peterson, Coordinator of Parent & Community Involvement
Many studies over the past decade show that the more involved a parent is in their child’s education, the higher the academic achievement of that child. Parents are most often the most influential person in their child’s life because they are their child’s first teacher. The seeds of promise that are planted by a parent as a child grows genuinely influence their future.
The challenge is that many parents would like to be involved in their child’s education but do not know how. Parents also want to know how to identify and access high-quality programs and school activities that will support their child’s success in school.
Feel free to search the Parent Involvement Resources on this page to find many practical and fun ways to become an involved parent. The various links on these webpages will offer suggestions, ideas and tips.
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) gives custodial and noncustodial parents alike certain rights with respect to their
children’s education records, unless a school is provided with evidence that there is a court order or State law that specifically provides to the contrary.
Otherwise, both custodial and noncustodial parents have the right: to access their children’s education records, to seek to have the records amended, to
consent to disclosure of personally identifiable information from the records and to file a complaint with the Family Policy Compliance Office. A
non-custodial parent who would like access to their child’s education records or to receive school notices and communications must submit a written request
to the Building Principal of the school the child attends.

Supplemental Educational Services (Free Tutoring)
Parents did you know that your child may qualify for Supplemental Educational Services, such as free tutoring?
