Parent involvement has a measurable impact on student performance in school and is particularly important for English Language Learners and students from low-income families.

We recognize that each community has different needs and resources. By leveraging the full range of community resources, WABS is able to create an inclusive and supportive environment for student achievement across all of our member districts. Additionally, WABS strives to improve connections between families, communities, educators, and schools to create a comprehensive support system for students throughout their K-12 experience.

The Natural Leaders program provides parents and families, training, mentoring, and leadership opportunities to increase their capacity to engage with the school community and support student learning.

The Family STEM Nights program introduces families to STEM and the engineering design process in order to help students and their families see themselves in STEM careers in the future.
