Community and Parental Involvement
Alief ISD’s Family and Community Engagement Program establishes meaningful and effective partnerships with all stakeholders including our Alief families and Alief volunteers. Our goal is to build a strong bridge between Alief schools and our Alief community by providing opportunities that lead to improved student success, stronger and equipped families and informed and healthier communities.
Our Alief volunteers are critical to the success of our schools and students. Monthly over 400 career professionals, retired community members, veterans and parents volunteer a total of over 2600 hours in our Alief schools. Our Alief families partner with teachers and staff in the education of their children and understand that family engagement and empowerment are essential at all levels.
Research shows that family engagement has a positive effect on student success. Students whose families are engaged in their education in some way:
- Earn higher grades and test scores
- Have better social skills
- Graduate and go on to post-secondary education
Each Alief campus houses a Family Center staffed by a full-time trained Family Liaison. Family Centers are open Tuesday –Friday, serve over five hundred families a week and provide over thirty family friendly courses and opportunities that equip our families to support their children academically.
All staff in Alief play a role in Family Engagement as they partner to offer campus wide family events serving over 28,000 families a month. Our staff remain committed to serving our families of Alief. We invite our families and community members to continue partnering with us, as we journey towards the academic success of our students.
