The establishment of a robust parent-school partnership supports student success. The School District is participating in the Florida Department of Education's Dads Take Your Child to School Day on Wednesday, September 28th. This initiative is a great opportunity to encourage fathers, stepfathers, foster fathers, grandfathers, and other significant male caregivers to get involved in their children's education. When fathers and other male role models are actively involved, students perform better academically and become more responsible adults.
Florida Standards Assessment (FSA) in Palm Beach County schools begins in April and is scheduled to run through May 20th.
