Parent Engagement

“The evidence is in: when schools and families work together to support learning, everyone benefits.  Students do better in school and in life.  Parents become empowered. Teacher morale improves. Schools get better. Communities grow stronger.”  

- National Coalition for Parent Involvement in Education   

The District School Improvement Team (DSIT) is one way to support student learning across the district. The DSIT is the conduit between parents and community members and the district and the Board of Education.  We facilitate dialogue on important issues, including student achievement and assessments, and provide opportunities for input on decisions regarding district and school budgets, district policies and school choice.   To learn more about DSIT, click here.

Whether you were the type of student who tended to sit in the front row in school or the one who liked to sit in the back and take it all in, as a parent and adult member of our Adams 12 community, your place in our children's education is front and center.  All have ideas, opinions and skills to contribute.  Everyone is welcome.  Everyone is needed.
