Parent Involvement: Bridging the GAP
In an effort to empower and engage our families, Mr. Timothy Fairley conducted research on the best ways to engage
and empower families at Russell Elementary School. Based on
recommendations from his study, we have implemented the Russell
RoadCHAT to encourage a dialogue between home and school.
We will continue the Russell RoadCHAT during the 2014-2015
If you have not done so already, please complete the
PARENT INVOLVEMENT survey below, so we can better serve our
