Harrisburg SD says new initiative will allow parents be more involved in child's education
The Harrisburg School District is launching a new initiative to increase achievements, attendance and graduation rates at Harrisburg High School, John Harris Campus.
The initiative also aims to close the achievement gap and give parents ways at becoming more involved in their child's academic success.
The goal is to improve overall success for high school students here in the Harrisburg School District.
Thursday night, parents have the chance to meet with the Harrisburg High principal and chat about ways parents can get more involved in helping their kid succeed in school.
The district hasn't gone into full detail about the new initiative or how they plan on executing it, something they plan to discuss during Thursday night's meeting.
School district officials say they hope it will bring a new vision for school and student improvement. With again the backbone really being getting parents more involved in their child's education.
Through this initiative school district officials say that not only do they hope to raise attendance and graduation rates at the high school but also give students more of a chance to be college and career ready.
And with the school year coming to a close, the district also wants to let parents know about summer education and enrichment programs for their children.
If you're a parent or community member and you're not able to make it make it to Thursday night's meeting, there will be another one held next Wednesday, May 17 at the Latino American Hispanic Center on Derry Street in Harrisburg.
