5. We believe Providence families and the entire Providence community can and must support our students’ success.

We believe—
  • Families are the first teachers of our students.
  • Our community has rich cultural resources to support the education of our students.
  • The school system and the community are mutually accountable to one another for student success.
  • We commit to partnering with family and community in shaping and supporting the education of our students.
We will—
  • Welcome and engage families and community as valued partners and advocates for education.
  • Establish good home-school communications by providing friendly ways for parents to contact us and by communicating with families in clear, straightforward language.
  • Provide a range of ways for families to participate in the education of their children at home and in the schools.
  • Partner with the community to connect schools, students, and families with community assets.
