Involved parents develop more positive attitudes toward school and school personnel, help gather support, and bring additional resources to benefit the schools. Teachers who participated in a parent involvement program improved their teaching and reported much greater job satisfaction. In addition, these schools reported that parent involvement programs prove to be a cost-effective way to increase student achievement.

District School Improvement Team
The District School Improvement Team offers a chance for parents and community members to GET INFORMED, HAVE A VOICE, BE A PART OF OUR CHILDREN'S EDUCATION!
DSIT has been a driving force in parent and community engagement and an example for simliar groups in the region since 1971. This group continues to make a difference in the education of the next generation.
This website has been designed to serve as a resource for parents and members of the community interested in learning more about how to become partners in improving the quality of our district, our schools and our community. We encourage you to take a look around, click on the links provided and learn more about how you too can become involved in DSIT.
Next DSIT meeting is Thursday, April 11th, 2013 at 6:30pm.
