Examples: Engagement

Example: Pupil Outcomes

“I’m a grandparent raising a second set of teenagers. When my kids went to school here 17-18 years ago, they didn’t have the opportunity because there were no arts programs. There was no marching band. My first children struggled constantly, and they were good and smart kids and could get good grades. But they just weren’t motivated. The difference is night and day between how hard it was to get kids to school then and now. I have not had a day where it was hard to get my grandkids to school [because these programs motivate them]. Emphasis on performing arts should cover the whole district. It just grows your brain the way exercise grows your body.” (Grandparent)

“The District has a program that’s successful – dual language immersion program - but unfortunately it’s only in three schools. It’s so successful that it has a waiting list. Research has shown that this increases their academic capacity. So it’s a huge benefit for them to learn more than one language. It’s our responsibility as parents to advocate for this program to be distributed throughout the district, and not just the three schools, that the finances and resources be distributed so that the dual language immersion program can be available to all students.” (Parent – translated from Spanish)

“[Foster youth] are really scared and they’ve got low self-esteem. The problem is that they’ve been bouncing from school to school, home to home, and a lot of the records get lost. They say you have to wait until we get the record. Now the kids are sitting at home feeling bad because they want to go to school, but they can’t go to school. If there was some way for schools to welcome them in a little bit, then people will treat them differently. There’s got to be a way to integrate them into the school more.” (Parent)
