In seeking to collaborate and support parents, McKinney Independent School District acknowledges that parents, like children and teachers, have opportunities to learn and grow at every stage over their life span. The Parent Engagement Program hopes to assist parents in reflecting on the process of their own growth alongside their children’s growth and development within the community.
The goal of the McKinney Independent School District Parent Engagement Program is to increase student achievement by engaging and empowering parents, as well as other stakeholders, to become actively involved in their children’s education across all grade levels.
The Parent Engagement program is comprised of three components: Education Series, Practical Parent Education, Brown Bag Bytes.
*The Education Series is focused in providing parents as well as the community at large with specialized content information on MISD’s educational programs. Coordinators, Counselors, Administrators and Directors will support the Education Series by conducting presentations during the academic school year.
*The Practical Parent Education component will offer parent education classes within the community. A series of 10 sessions will be presented by trained PPE instructors. Classes will be conducted in Spanish and English. Childcare will also be available.
*The Brown Bag Bytes component will offer online presentations for working parents at their worksites and for PTA’s and other organizations seeking to strengthen families. As the title suggests, they are designed to be made available at the work site, as “Brown Bag” lunch meetings lasting forty-five to sixty minutes.
Below you will find a link to of the MISD Parent Engagement Program Workshops scheduled for the Fall and Spring Semesters. The Brown Bag Bytes component will be rolled out in the coming months.
