Alief ISD will establish meaningful and effective partnerships with all stakeholders by providing a welcoming environment that allows for meaningful engagement; providing opportunities that inform and equip all Alief families and by creating viable partnerships between schools and families that ensure the success of all Alief students.
Welcome Alief families. Alief's Family and Community Engagement Program is excited to partner with you in the success of your children. We have shifted from parental involvement to FAMILY ENGAGEMENT by rolling out our FAME Initiative – Families Actively and Meaningfully Engaged.
In Alief, we believe that parents are partners with teachers and 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 invite our Alief families and community members to climb aboard and engage in our schools as we partner together to ensure the success of all students.
