HOUSTON – Nov. 18, 2015 – On National Parental Involvement Day, Nov. 19, Spring Independent School District recognizes the important role that parent volunteers play in student academic success.
“Years of research clearly demonstrate that when schools and families partner in support of a student’s learning, they will do better in school. To achieve our district’s mission, we must support parents as leaders and equal partners in the decisions that affect their students’ learning and development,” said Superintendent Dr. Rodney Watson.
Parental involvement opportunities in Spring ISD are numerous, including district and campus committees, parent and teacher organizations, booster clubs and mentoring programs.
The Volunteers in Public Schools program provides opportunities for parents to serve. A wide variety of needs that could be met by volunteers includes classroom reading, career presentations, mentoring, hall monitoring, copying and filing. Individuals interested in volunteering in Spring ISD schools may call the Family and Community Engagement department at 281-891-6013 or contact their child’s school.
