Parent and Community Involvement
Strengthening the Role Parents Play
Hillsborough County Public Schools is committed to increase parent and community engagement throughout the district. The district fosters wider and more substantive family and community involvement by identifying and sharing information with schools and community partners about the many different ways parents can get involved in their child's education. The goal is to strengthen our collaborative network with district and school personnel, parent, community, and faith-based organizations. It is the mission of the district's Parent/Community Involvement Consortium to provide information, advocacy, and community links to strengthen the role parents play in a child’s education.
In Hillsborough County Public Schools we are embracing new ways to help every child succeed. As the 8th largest school district in the nation, we understand our responsibility to our students and our community and we are proud of what we have accomplished so far by working with teachers, collaborating with stakeholders and engaging with the community to provide excellence in education. The district strives to provide exceptional experiences and opportunities to prepare every student for success in college and/or career.
The Hillsborough County Public Schools Parent/Family Involvement awards are an avenue by which parents, business partners, school staff members and other members of the community are recognized for going above and beyond the call of duty in furthering the advancement of parent/community involvement. These individuals and groups have brought to the schools unique and innovative ideas that have had a positive impact on parent involvement
The Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) requires that school districts provide parents with an annual school status report at the beginning of each school year. To assist Florida school districts in preparing these reports, known as the School Public Accountability Reports (SPARs), the Department of Education (FDOE) has posted school reports containing data for the required indicators and the Annual Measurable Objectives (AMO) report on the Web at http://doeweb-prd.doe.state.fl.us/eds/nclbspar/index.cfm.
