Mission

Engage, Empower, and Connect Families to Support Student Achievement

Vision

Our program is based on three key informational strategies:

  • Empower parents to navigate their school and use its resources.
  • Engage families to take targeted action to achieve career-ready graduates.
  • Connect families to district goals and community resources that improve student achievement.

When parents are engaged, students perform better academically.
