The Inspired Families Association (IFA) is open to any family member that has a student at Inspired Teaching School. However, we are striving to ask that all families become “active members” of the IFA. What makes you an “active member” is that you actively participate in striving to accomplish the goals that the IFA currently has in place and help us to create new ones. This can be done by families committing to volunteering their time, expertise, money or voice.
There are many reasons to participate in the IFA, but the main reason is to benefit your child and larger school community. Other reasons to become an active member of the IFA are:
Help Your Child Succeed. IFA fosters parent involvement. Parent involvement has been proven by three decades of research to be the greatest predictor of student success.
Speak Up. Because IFA is a forum for exchanging ideas, you are encouraged to make suggestions and more effectively help implement change at your child’s school.
Participate In Improvement. By getting involved at your child’s school you’ll be part of the solution, helping to make positive changes.
Get Connected. There’s no better way to know what’s happening at Inspired Teaching School.
Discover Great Resources. The IFA offers a variety of programs designed for parents as well as students.
Tap into a Network. IFA functions provide opportunities to meet other parents and teachers, build rapport and discuss parenting issues that are on your mind.
Be a Role Model. By becoming a IFA member, you’ll be demonstrating to your child the importance you place on education and community involvement.
