The South Fayette Township School District received a $10,000 grant from Kidsburgh through the Parents as Allies Initiative for the 2022-2023 School Year! The research-based project was designed in 2021 to build connections between schools and families and includes 24 schools in the region. South Fayette entered into this program in April 2022.
Dr. Chuck Herring, Dr. Kevin Maurer, and five of our parents have been working through this project to build opportunities for teamwork between families, educators, and administrators to support student learning and well-being. The ultimate goal is to enhance the strong partnership that already exists in our school district.
The monetary award was given to South Fayette in order to implement unique activities that bring families into the school to interact with our staff in non-traditional ways. With the recent district-focus on the "World of Work" and Holland's "RIASEC Codes," this was a perfect opportunity to invite parents/guardians into the initial implementation of the "World of Work" Framework.
During the first semester, the Parents as Allies committee along with the Intermediate School Administration and Staff facilitated a Holland Code/RIASEC experience for parents/guardians. This entailed scoring parents’/guardians’ RIASEC assessments and facilitating a fun-filled evening event. The event was highlighted in the latest Kidsburgh Newsletter!
The South Fayette Township School District Parents as Allies Committee is looking forward to coordinating and providing upcoming events and resources for the families of our school district!
