For Education Beyond the Expected...
You Make the Difference!
Parents are more than their child's first teachers. To us, parents are vital partners as we prepare students for success in school and beyond.
According to the National Education Association, children with involved parents and family members are more likely to be promoted, pass their classes, have better social skills, attend school regularly, graduate, and go on to postsecondary education.
We hope you'll browse the links on this page for information and ideas about how to stay involved in your child’s education and support learning at home.
New Standards Coming to California Classrooms
For the first time, nearly the whole nation has the same high academic standards for students. That means all students will get a good education, even if they change schools or move to a different state. The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) emphasize skills in collaboration, communication, critical thinking and creativity. They were designed by teachers, parents, business leaders and education experts to prepare students for success in college and the workplace.
