National PTA’s School of Excellence program supports and celebrates partnerships between PTAs and schools that work to improve the educational experience and school environment for every child.
Check out Sparkplugs, the annual publication of exemplary practices for family involvement. The programs described in Sparkplugs reflect only a
few of the many innovative practices used across
the state to involve parents and family members in meaningful school programs. Each program was nominated for the 2014 Parent Involvement Award
by its school district. The purpose of the Parent Involvement Award, sponsored by the Florida PTA, theFlorida Department of Education and State Farm Insurance, is to promote and recognize exemplary school practices that increase family involvement. All entries must be school projects that focus on a specific school-initiated parent/family involvement program or strategy, including those taking place in the work¬place, faith-based institutions, and other convenient locations.
Based on National PTA Standards for Family-School Partnerships in education, the programs address he key strategies for increasing family involvement:
1. Welcoming all families into the school community
2. Communicating effectively
3. Supporting student success
4. Speaking up for every child
5. Sharing power
6. Collaborating with the community
