“We take great pride in the fact that Florida leads the nation in school choice and student performance,” Education Commissioner Pam Stewart said. “Through the Florida Students Achieve website, we provide a central location where parents and families can access the information they need to make the best education decisions for their students. It is my hope that all Floridians will take advantage of this tremendous resource.”One of the website’s primary functions is the school performance search tool, which ultimately enables parents to search by district, zip code, city or other geographic data view and then compare school and district data.

Title 1 Parent Involvement

 

ESOL Parent Involvement 

 

Some Ways for parents and care givers to get involved:

  • Attend a Student Advisory Counsel (SAC) meeting at your school.  This committee is open to parents, teachers, and community members.
  • Join the Parent Teacher organization at your school.
  • Read with or to your child.
  • Assist your child with homework.
  • Join the Parent Involvement Council (formerly DPAC) – Open to parents with children attending Title I schools.   This parent group collaborates and shares programs that are working or programs that need attention.  Parents give input after reviewing the Parent Involvement plan for the district as well as input on what questions should be on the Parent Involvement Survey.   The goal of this group is to increase parent involvement, which will increase student achievement!
  • Join the ESOL Parent Leadership Committee (ESOL PLC)– Open to all ESOL parents.  This group helps to meet the needs of the ESOL population.  Russian and Spanish translators in attendance for parents.
  • Join Grandparents Parenting Again – Open to Grandparents that are now parenting their grandchildren.  This group discusses the unique circumstances grandparents parenting again encounter and offers the support from other grandparents in similar situations.
  • Parents of students that attend a Title I school can use the Parent Resource Centers at the Title I schools.  They have manipulatives, literature, and games to help reinforce learning at home.
  • Talk to your child about their day.  Inquire about both social and academic issues.
  • Attend school events.  Check the school calendars and/or newsletters that come home for information about upcoming events.
  • Communicate with your child’s school.  We value your input!
  • Become a school volunteer.

We are a team!  Together with strong school–home relationships, we can help strengthen the academic success of our students!
