"Volunteers don't get paid, not because they're worthless, but because they're priceless." - Sherry Anderson
The positive correlation between parent involvement in children's education and academic achievement has been widely documented. Likewise the participation of communities has a major impact on academic achievement. With these facts in mind, Board Member Laurie Rich Levinson proposed the Parent/Community Involvement Task Force (PCITF), and this group became a reality when the School Board unanimously endorsed its establishment at the March 1, 2011 Board meeting.
