All of the district schools, as a part of Title I funding, are provided with Parent Facilitators to assist them in achieving their goals and expectations of helping and keeping parents engaged in their child's education. Research shows that children who have parents that regularly attend school events and stay updated on grades and other academic endeavors are more likely to excel in school activities and succeed at a higher level than those children who have parents that are less active when it comes to academia.

Helping you stay informed
ParentVUE allows parents to access information from their home computer on information on their child’s assignments and scores, attendance, conference visits, transcripts, graduation status and more. It simplifies home-to-school district communication, offering a single sign-on to view your child or children's information, regardless of school.
Parents and guardians are notified of weather-related closures, emergencies, school events and other information using the district’s telephone parent notification system, known as SchoolReach. The system doesn’t require any registration by the parent. All information and contact numbers are secure and strictly confidential, and are only used for the district notification purposes.
