10-28-2008 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 and proclaim November, 2008 as Florida Parental Involvement in Education Month for Brevard Public Schools in accordance with the proclamation signed by Governor Crist.
