  • PARENT INVOLVEMENT POLICY

    POLICY

    El Sausal's Parent Involvement Policy seeks to provide the tools to enhance the parental role in children's learning both at home and at school. The school strives to design programs that build on the strength of it's population, seeking opportunities to invite parent and community participation in school activities, and creating partnerships between those involved in students success. These partnerships create relationships that contribute to student achievement and that respond to the unique needs of middle school students and their families.
