Parent involvement activities create a strong network of support for the students in your classroom. Parental involvement shows kids their parents are interested in their education and in them. We encourage you to take an active role by participating in PTA and School sponsored activities, classroom, and stopping by the parent room for continuous opportunities to enhance your child's learning experience.

Dolores Gonzales Elementary uses PTA National Standards for Family-School Partnerships as a framework for how families, schools, and communities should work together to support student success. The standards, as created by National PTA, are as follows:

  • Standard 1: Welcoming all families into the school community - Families are active participants in the life of the school, and feel welcomed, valued, and connected to each other, to school staff, and to what students are learning and doing in class.
  • Standard 2: Communicating effectively - Families and school staff engage in regular, two-way, meaningful communication about student learning.
  • Standard 3: Supporting student success - Families and school staff continuously collaborate to support students' learning and healthy development both at home and at school, and have regular opportunities to strengthen their knowledge and skills to do effectively.
  • Standard 4: Speaking up for every child - Families are empowered to be advocates for their own and other children, to ensure that students are treated fairly and have access to learning opportunities that will support their success.
  • Standard 5: Sharing power - Families and school staff are equal partners in decisions that affect children and families and together inform, influence, and create policies, practices, and programs.
  • Standard 6: Collaborating with community - Families and school staff collaborate with community members to connect students, families and staff to expanded learning opportunities, community services, and civic participation.
