    Dear Career Academy School

    My name is Darnell Heavens and I would like
    to take this time to introduce myself as the Family & Community Specialist
    serving Career Academy High School for the 2015-2016 school year. As part of the SLPS Office of Family &
    Community engagement, my purpose is to build new and strengthen existing
    partnerships with families and the local community by articulating the vision
    of Career Academy High School and increasing parent awareness of federal,
    state, district, school policies as well as mandates of the SLPS District.

    It is commonly acknowledged that one of the
    most essential components of student achievement and success is parent
    involvement. At Career Academy High School we believe that parents are a vital
    partner in their child’s education and that parents are the secret weapon to
    not only increasing student achievement but sustaining it. It is through this
    partnership that we are able to provide resources for parents to support their
    child academically and more importantly have an open communication system to
    keep parents abreast of the happenings in the school.

    As part of our effort, we have volunteer
    applications for those who would like to serve as volunteers in the school and
    for special school events. WE also encourage every parent to become part of
    Career Academy PTO as we have many exciting things planned for this year!

    Here at Career Academy High School we pride
    ourselves in providing a school culture that is focused on academic excellence.
    Therefore, we encourage our parents to become partners with us to ensure Career
    Academy High School students receive an exemplary academic education that
    prepares them to meet the challenges of our dynamic global society.
