During the school year, students spend 70% of their waking hours away from home and with teachers, administrators, and staff at school.
Parent and Family Engagement (PFE) programs seek to promote an active, two-way relationship in which parents and school educators learn from and support each other. CISD firmly believes that education is a partnership between parents and schools and is committed to providing equal access to education for all students.
Through our PFE programming and the PFE webpage, CISD endeavors to present families and educators with ways to connect with each other and with students, to achieve the goal of academic success for all students.
The research spanning decades continues to find that “involving parents and families in the education of their children is strongly linked to positive academic outcomes—ranging from increased school readiness and higher reading and math scores to higher graduation rates.”
We hope that you will use the PFE page to find resources and information that will help you to connect with your child’s school and find opportunities to participate in your Tiger’s education!
