information for parents

NEISD FAMILY SPECIALISTS

Family Specialists are located at over 30 of the NEISD campuses and provide support and services for students and their families, creating a true connection between home life, school life and community life.

In collaboration with school staff, the Family Specialists:

  • provide families with information from the district, community agencies, city and state institutions, and any other organizations that might benefit those with specific needs;
  • facilitate and conduct parent education classes, counseling and mentoring;
  • assist students and families to reach their maximum educational benefits; and
  • provide support to those who are in emotional or financial crisis.

Family Specialists have the knowledge and concern for the wide range of social, emotional, cultural, and economic differences among the student’s families.

 

the importance of parental Engagement

We hear it all the time- parents are their children’s first and most important teachers.  That role seems clearer when they are young and need help with just about everything.  But once a child enters school, other adults assume the teachers role, leaving many parents wondering what they can do to support and encourage learning. 

One thing is certain: for children to learn their lessons well and remain curious about the many new and interesting parts of their world, they still need their parents’ help and daily encouragement.  Research repeatedly shows that children are better, more successful learners when their parents are actively involved in their learning, both at home and at school. 

Before you rush to the store for a pack of flash cards, consider this:  When it comes to helping children grow as learners, many of the things that parents do each day are what really matter most.
