On August 1 , 2022 National PTA was pleased to honor North Springfield Elementary and 242 PTAs and schools from across the country as 2021-2023 Schools of Excellence for forming strong partnerships that are enriching the educational experience and overall well-being for all students.
When a school and its PTA make a joint decision to become a National PTA School of Excellence, they are making a commitment to work together as a team to build effective family-school partnerships in their school community. They embark on a year-long effort to enrich the educational experience and overall well-being for all students, using PTA's National Standards for Family-School Partnerships and a customized Roadmap to Excellence as their guide.
“National PTA’s School of Excellence program provides a framework for PTAs and schools to identify and implement best practices in family engagement to strengthen family-school partnerships. The program also helps build inclusive and welcoming school communities where all families contribute to enriching the educational experience and overall well-being for all students,” said Nathan R. Monell, CAE, National PTA executive director. “There could not be a more urgent time for families and schools to work together to support our students’ success academically, socially and emotionally and promote learning environments where students feel safe, supported and ready to learn.”
As National PTA Schools of Excellence, a school has made significant progress to welcome and empower families to support student success and school improvements. They join an elite group of schools recognized by National PTA for their partnerships with families through PTA to enrich the educational experience and overall well-being for all students.
