Parent and Family Engagement

Parent and Family Engagement (PFE) in a child’s education is a greater predictor of academic success than socioeconomic status.

Why Parent and Family Engagement?

Learn to read faster (Exhibit faster rates of literacy acquisition.)
Have higher grades and test scores.
Are promoted and take more challenging classes.
Adapt better to school and have better attendance.
Have better social skills and behavior.

10 Best Practices for Strong Families

School-wide Title I school

Lopez is designated as a school-wide program, which takes the form of a comprehensive reform strategy designed to improve all educational programming in a school. The primary goal is to ensure that all students, particularly those who are low-achieving, meet and exceed the learning goals defined by state academic standards.

Learning Assistance Program

LAP offers supplemental services for K–12 students scoring below grade-level standard in English language arts (ELA) and mathematics. These services focus on accelerating student growth to make progress towards grade level. They may include academic readiness, skill development, or behavior supports. These services address barriers preventing students from accessing core instruction. The intent is for LAP students to increase academic growth during the period of time they are provided services. LAP emphasizes research-based best practices designed to increase student achievement.
