The Parent Involvement Schools of Excellence Certification recognizes schools with parent involvement programs based on the National Standards for Parent/Family Involvement Programs. The Standards have been endorsed by over 100 health and education organizations across the nation. The Parent Involvement Schools of Excellence Certification Program is designed to help all schools assess their parent involvement practices, make improvements where needed, and earn one of two distinctions; Certification of Excellence or Recognition of Commitment.
To better celebrate PTAs for implementing the National Standards for Family-School Partnerships, the Parent Involvement Schools of Excellence Certification has merged with the Phoebe Apperson Hearst-National PTA Excellence in Education Partnership Award to create three new levels of recognition.
Outstanding Family-School Partnership Award – For exemplary implementation of the National Standards, one local PTA will receive a monetary award of $2,000.
Family-School Partnership Award of Excellence – For representing the best in one of the six National Standards, six local PTAs will each receive monetary awards of $500.
Family-School Partnership Award of Merit – For demonstrating commitment to building partnerships, all local PTAs that apply will receive a certificate of recognition.
To apply for one of the awards, submit one application – no fees! All local PTAs and PTA councils in good standing are eligible to apply.
