Parent Academies for Literacy (PAL) is a new family and engagement literacy event for kindergarten, first and second grade students, with the goal of enhancing families’ connections to their children’s schools, as well as parent knowledge about early literacy skills and reading. DCSD’s Literacy team members are partnering with Reading Recovery teachers, K-2 classroom teachers and school principals in order to provide this new offering for schools and families. Funded by a Title I grant, the program runs for one hour after school, one day a week for three weeks, with each session building on the previous session. Children of all literacy skill levels are welcome to participate.
The award wasn't a surprise to anyone at Rocky Heights Middle School except for Kim Chlumsky herself.
A fairly new partnership between DCSD’s Prevention & School Culture team and Douglas County Teen Court coordinators is providing a new path for youth offenders. Additionally, Sources of Strength— now present in most DCSD high schools and some middle schools— is establishing a healthy culture and climate with the goal of catching youth long before they fall into unhealthy behaviors or consider taking their own lives.
