Sept. 8, 2016
National PTA® has recognized Liberty Elementary School and the Liberty PTA as a National PTA School of Excellence for their achievement in building effective family-school partnerships. Research shows that when families and schools work together, student achievement increases, schools improve and communities grow stronger. Being recognized as a National PTA School of Excellence demonstrates Liberty Elementary School and Liberty PTA and their leadership and commitment to supporting student success and continuous school improvement.
“The partnership between Liberty Elementary School and Liberty PTA is a true example of what can be accomplished when schools and families work together,” said Laura Bay, president of National PTA. “Liberty Elementary School and Liberty PTA have put strong practices into place that involve families in the life of the school, and we are pleased to recognize them as a National PTA School of Excellence.”
National PTA launched its National PTA School of Excellence program to help strengthen family-school partnerships across the country and make measurable progress in the areas of education, health and safety and arts and cultural exploration. As a National PTA School of Excellence, families at Liberty Elementary School families feel welcomed and empowered to support student success, and PTA is a key partner for continuous school improvement.
To be recognized as a National PTA School of Excellence, PTAs evaluate their current family engagement strategies and submit a goal for school improvement that families, teachers and administrators have set together. They improve upon their family engagement strategies throughout the year, while focusing on their goal. The National PTA School of Excellence designation is awarded to those schools that have demonstrated improvement in the family-school partnership and significant progress toward their goal.
To celebrate their achievements, National PTA presented Liberty Elementary School and Liberty PTA with a National PTA School of Excellence banner. For more information about the National PTA School of Excellence program, visit PTA.org/Excellence.
