Parent and Family Engagement
Over 30 years of research has proven:

"When parents talk to their children about school, expect them to do well, help them plan for college or a career, and make sure the out-of-school activities are constructive, their children tend to do well in school and life."
 -Florida Department of Education Bureau of Family and Community Outreach
