Parent Involvement Committee

One of the most effective and rewarding ways that parents can become involved in their children's learning is through active involvement in their school council. You will have the opportunity to voice your opinions on school issues and decisions on behalf of parents and community members in your school community.
Research shows that parental involvement is the most significant factor contributing to a child's success in school. Their active participation in school activities improves student achievement, increases school attendance and decreases student dropout. Students succeed when parents have a positive attitude about the importance of a good education.
