Renton School District starts parent engagement program


 

The Renton School District has launched a parent engagement program that recognizes and supports parents, guardians and primary caretakers as the first and strongest influence in their child's life. The program, Parent Academy for Student Achievement (PASA), offers independent sessions over the course of nine weeks for parents of young children. Each session is designed to support sharing of information and resources. Session topics include: playing to learn, recognizing and achieving developmental milestones, and communicating and collaborating with schools. The sessions are led by Parent Peer Trainers from the school communities and are taught in multiple languages. Through this learning experience, participants form community connections with each other that support the future of all children. 

 

The Kent School District also has a PASA program, and many other Road Map Project districts are building or strengthening their own parent engagement efforts. To read more about this growing momentum, please visit the Engaging Parents section of the 2014 Results Report.
