The Mesquite Independent School district believes that parent involvement is basic to the achievement and success of each child and is committed to advancing the partnership between home and school. In order to implement collaborative partnerships between parents and schools, the district is committed to encompassing the goals and requirements of Sec. 1118 of Public Law 107-110.
Sandy Travis and Lynda Matthews are our Title 1 Parent Liaisons. Mrs. Travis and Mrs. Matthews are both certified teachers who taught in our Title 1 program and have been trained in Reading Recovery™. They now consult with parents and teachers on each Title 1 campus. Information is provided on how parents can work with their child’s teacher to meet objectives, how to involve parents in planning, designing, implementing, and evaluating the program and maintaining an open communication between parents and school. Each year at the district professional development center, parent education sessions are held such as Love & Logic, Nutrition Classes, Dental Health, Internet Safety, Basic Computer Classes, and Make & Take. Assistance is also provided to individual campuses for developing community involvement days at their individual sites. Some examples of those events are Family Health Fairs and Games Kids Play.
Information on these and other events will always be sent home with your student(s) and posted on the campus Parent Involvement bulletin board. We encourage you to be actively involved in your child’s education.
For more information, please feel free to contact your child’s campus or call Mrs. Travis at (972) 882-7772 or Mrs. Matthews at (972) 882-8733.
