In keeping with the belief that learning should take place at home, in school and in the community and with research showing that parent involvement is the single most important indicator of school success, the School Board of Broward County has identified "Empowering Parents and Community Through Participation" as a major system priority. The purpose of this policy is to promote meaningful parent and family participation and to identify standards for effective parent/family involvement.
Kòm nou kwè pwosesis aprann dwe pran rasin lakay, nan lekòl ak nan kominote-a epi kòm rechèch montre patisipasyon fanmi se prensipal faktè ki pi enpòtan nan siksè timoun lekòl, School Board of Broward County (Konsèy Edikasyon nan Brawad Kaounti) idantifye “Empowering Parents and Community Through Participation” [Bay patisipasyon fanmi ak kominote pouvwa] kòm yon priyorite esansyèl nan sistèm-lan. Bi regleman-sa-a se pwomouvwa yon patisipasyon reyèl paran ak fanmi epi idantifye estanda pou patisipasyon efektif paran/fanmi.
En armonía con la creencia de que el aprendizaje ocurre en el hogar, en la escuela y en la comunidad, y con las investigaciones que demuestran que la participación de los padres es el indicador más importante del éxito escolar, the School Board of Broward County ha identificado “Empowering Parents and Community Through Participation” como la primera prioridad en el sistema. El propósito de esta regla es promover la participación significativa de los padres y de la familia e identificar los estándares para una participación efectiva de los padres y de la familia.
