A call to action to increase parental/family and community engagement!
The Parent Support For Education Council, Inc. (PSFEC) has invested much time and energy focusing on the important issue of increasing parental/family and community engagement and we will continue to go forward in the power and guidance of the Holy Spirit of God!
One of the most difficult problems in our schools is the lack of parental/family and community engagement. Although there are many families and community members engaged in the lives of children, many people still aren’t aware of the problem.
Note: This article is in no way an indictment; rather it is a CALL TO ACTION!
The following elementary schools listed below have a majority of children entering the fourth grade that are not reading at a third-grade level: Campbell Park, Fairmount Park, Lakewood, Maximo and Melrose.
Several months ago PSFEC issued a call to action, and we are pleased to report that the Holy Spirit has influenced several community-based organizations to partner with us to service Melrose Elementary. More than 15 partners are signed up so far.
