Parental Involvement Policy
Edison Elementary is committed to its students. We believe a partnership between the school and home is essential to the success of a child. At Edison, we use our AVID agendas and binders to provide a direct home-school communication tool for every classroom.
The Parent-School Compact is an agreement between Edison Elementary School staff, parents, and students.
