Parent & Community Leadership
PALS– Parents as Leaders
Parents as Leaders was developed to help train parents who attended the PELI training on topics such as fiscal management, fundraising, developing relationships with school committees, social media, advertising and parent recruitment. We continue to operate PELI under our newly formatted PALs design. We are currently working with over a dozen parent volunteers facilitating programs across our district.
ATP– Action Team for Partnership
The ATP is a collaboration of parents working diligently in coordinating the action plan set at the PELI meeting for their school site. Parents meet once a month with the Department of Parent Involvement and continue receiving support for their ATP and developing new ATPs.
This program is a 10-week literacy program. The goal is to establish and support a family reading routine. Each program is designed to be an educational process that encourages critical reflection and dialogue by means of literacy as well as to strengthen parent-child interactions. Parents are introduced to a new bilingual book each week which they take home to read with their children. Parents also create a family album throughout the duration of the program.
