Silvis School District Parent Resources

While the nation and our public education system have changed a lot in the last one hundred years, one factor—family engagement—remains critical to student achievement. Ongoing research shows that famliy engagement in schools improves student achievement, reduces absenteeism, and restores parents' confidence in their children's education. Students with involved parents or other carefivers earn higher grades and test scores, have better social skills, and show improved behavior. 

Becoming active in the school community is an important way to increase involvement.               

Involvement also encompasses:

  • Setting goals with children and fostering achievement of those goals;
  • Accessing and using children’s academic scores to ensure they’re on track;
  • Frequently viewing the parent portal;
  • Developing a relationship with children’s teachers and keeping in touch with them often; and
  • Advocating for improvements in the school building and with local school boards and state and federal government to ensure schools have the resources they need to provide an excellent education to every student.

               Great schools are a basic right and our shared responsibility. To all parents and families, “thank you” for being part of the education team.
