Parent engagement is parent and teachers sharing a responsibility to help their children learn and meet educational goals. Parent engagement happens when teachers involve parents in school meetings or events, and parents volunteer their support at home and at school. In this way, they make a commitment. Parents commit to prioritizing their child's educational goals, and teachers commit to listening and providing a space for collaboration with parents.

    It is our goal to provide an atmosphere where parents are able to express their views and to assist in problem-solving. We want parents to understand that we view them as joint policy and decision-makers and emphasize their roles as advocates. We strongly encourage you to seek out opportunities to volunteer,our volunteer. Ramsey's parent facilitator is Raquel Elkins and her contact info is relkins@fortsmithschools.org. Copies of our Parent and Family Engagement Plan are on our website and in our Resource Center. Please do not hesitate to contact us to volunteer or give suggestions.
