Cooperation between the educators, administrators, and families
Resources for students (including access for low income families, minorities, and disabled students) and adequate salary levels for educators
Providing information to students and families about all options available post-graduation (including college and trade school)
Empowering local districts to make the decisions on the best way for them to accomplish these goals in their community
To become educate citizens and productive members of society
Advocate for more district control and less state control.
Districts know how best to serve the students and families in their unique communities. There is no "one size fits all" answer.
Get to know your child's teacher and school administrators. Keep an open dialogue. Parents have the primarily responsible to educate their children and schools are available to help.
As a Foster Parent and Adoptive Parent I have been an advocate for several children over the years. Communication between parents and school staff is critical to help each student. Each student is unique and sometimes a different approach is needed.
