Engaged Families & Communities

Public schools are the cornerstones of our communities—and our communities make great public schools happen.
Parents, grandparents, caregivers, friends, neighborhood advocates: we all have a role to play in supporting student learning in the classroom and beyond.
Learning happens at home, in school, and everywhere in between. Here’s how you can help our children, wherever you are.

Family Support

Parents and caregivers are crucial to the education and growth of children.
2020 National Teacher of the Year Tabatha Rosporoy
There has to be a real focus on relationships. Because that’s what there is in life: me and you. That’s what’s important.
2019 Salem Kaizer RA delegates
