Welcome to the Emerald City School District.  We have designed this website to be a window to our school district. Whether this is the 1st, 10th or 100th time you’ve visited our website, we hope you will learn more about us each time.

Parental Involvement

The purpose of the Parenting Program is to enhance and support family education services for thousands of families across the Emerald City community through workshops, parent trainings, conferences, communications and distribution of parent instructional materials.

One of the most important components of the Parental Involvement Program is the School-Parent Compact Commitment Form. It is a learning agreement that is developed annually by parents, teachers, administrators and students. All stakeholders must commit to being accountable for the academic success of all students.

The Emerald City School System's Parental Involvement component was organized to create a stronger link between the home and school. Parenting activities primarily focus on teaching parents how to help their children become more successful in school. Free materials, primarily in math and reading, are provided by the Parenting Office located at the Russell Building.


A district-wide parenting activity is held each year in October at each local school.  Time schedules of various activities, programs and events will vary based on individual schools. Please contact your child's school for more information.
