COMMITMENT TO SERVICE EXCELLENCE
The district is committed to delivering excellent service in every interaction with parents, by providing individualized attention to your needs, demonstrating courtesy, and holding ourselves accountable.
PARENT AND FAMILY ENGAGEMENT
Parent and family engagement is the participation of parents in regular, two-way, and meaningful communication involving student academic learning and other school activities. The purpose is to ensure that parents play an integral role in their child’s learning and are active in their child’s education at school. Both experience and research tell us that a child’s education succeeds best when there is good communication and a strong partnership between home and school.

PARENT AND FAMILY ENGAGEMENT POLICY AND SCHOOL-PARENT COMPACT
Each school has developed a School Parent and Family Engagement Policy in consultation with parents to ensure the effective involvement of parents and to support a partnership among the school, parents, and the community to improve student academic achievement. This includes commitments to provide parents with information about academic standards, teacher qualifications, and how parents can help their children improve their achievement. All schools must develop jointly with, agree on with, and distribute to, parents a written School-Parent Compact. The compact outlines how parents and the school staff will share the responsibility for improved student academic achievement. Parents are urged to read, sign, and return to their school the School-Parent Compact. For more information, contact the school principal or the Parent and Community Engagement Coordinator at 915-434-0798.
Parents are encouraged to join and become active members of our parent organization groups. These groups include the district Volunteer Program, PTAs and PTOs. Please contact your child’s school office for further information. To become a YISD volunteer for the 2018-19 school year, the application is now open.
