10-27-2009 Special School Board Meeting
Agenda Item #8


Title
Florida Parental Involvement in Education Month

Discussion
Brevard Public Schools realizes that family involvement with a child's education is paramount to student success. In September, 2007, BPS launched a parent involvement campaign called "Be There." This is a multimedia research-based campaign designed to encourage parents to make ordinary moments extraordinary by connecting with their children during the daily routines of life. Proclaiming November as Florida Parental Involvement in Education Month reinforces our belief in the importance of family involvement in the education of children. When family expectations and positive contributions are high, student achievement and self esteem are higher.

Recommendation
Recognize November, 2009 as Florida Parental Involvement in Education Month for Brevard Public Schools.
