The following are links that many parents and students find useful throughout the year.

You may hear your child’s school refer to developing “MTSS” or a Multi-Tiered System of Support. By definition, MTSS is a tiered framework, which promotes school improvement through engaging, research-based academic and behavioral practices. North Carolina employs a systems approach, using data-driven problem solving to maximize growth for all students. Click here for more information!

Be There Goals:

•  To improve student achievement through increased family involvement.

•  To align parent activities with state/district goals.

•  To support educators by making it easier for parents to become effective partners.

•  To show families that simple, easy connections with children make a huge difference.
