District Family and School Partnership Plan

At Rome City Schools, we believe that a strong partnership between parents, family members, and our schools is crucial to the success of our students. This Family Engagement platform is designed to foster open communication, encourage active involvement, and create a supportive community that prioritizes student learning and achievement.

Why Family Engagement Matters:

Research has consistently shown that students perform better academically and socially when their families are actively engaged in their education. When parents and family members are involved, students tend to have higher attendance rates, improved behavior, and increased motivation to succeed. Family Engagement also helps bridge the gap between home and school, creating a cohesive learning environment for our students.

Our Commitment to Family Engagement:

  1. Regular Communication: We are dedicated to maintaining regular, two-way communication between our schools and families. Through various channels, including emails, newsletters, and this website, we will keep you informed about school events, academic progress, and opportunities for involvement.

  2. Parental Involvement: We encourage and welcome parents to actively participate in their child's educational journey. There are numerous ways to get involved, such as volunteering in classrooms, attending parent-teacher conferences, and participating in school events and activities.

  3. Collaboration and Partnership: Rome City Schools values the expertise and insights of parents and family members. We believe in working collaboratively with you to make informed decisions that best support the educational needs of our students. Your input is invaluable to us, and we invite you to join advisory committees to help shape our school's policies and programs.

  4. Every Student Succeeds: As outlined in the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), we are committed to implementing various family engagement activities that have proven to be effective in enhancing student success. We will regularly update this platform with information about these activities and how you can participate.

How to Get Involved:

We have created a dedicated section on this website that outlines various opportunities for family engagement. Whether you are a parent, grandparent, guardian, or a concerned family member, there's a way for you to get involved and make a positive impact on the lives of our students.

Remember, the more involved you are, the more significant the difference you can make in your child's educational journey. Let's work together to ensure our students' success and create a vibrant and nurturing learning community at Rome City Schools.

Thank you for being an essential part of our students' success!
