Ms. Sheila Maddox: Parent Liason at Rees
Families and Community Members partnering in the academic success of ALL students
Our Family Centers Are Now Open!
FAME is our new district initiative to promote family engagement: Families Actively and Meaningfully Engaged.
We are shifting from parental involvement to FAMILY ENGAGEMENT! Alief ISD is doing great things throughout the district to engage the families of our students. We are raising the bar and expectations of all stakeholders: teachers, administrators and our Alief families.
Research shows that family engagement has a positive effect on student success. In Alief, we believe that parents are partners with teachers and other staff in the education of their children and that family engagement and empowerment are essential at all levels throughout the school district. Everyone gains if school and home work together to promote high achievement by our children.
We are committed to serving our families of Alief!!! Won’t you partner with us, as WE journey towards the success of your children? Come on! Make your claim to F.A.M.E.!!
