Edison Environmental Science Academy

"The parents at Edison are very involved in their students learning. They take an active role in participating with our school events throughout the year."

Parent Involvement

At Edison Environmental Science Academy, parent involvement is key to the success of the school and students' academics. There is a variety of ways for parents to get involved; for example, with our Parent Group and School Improvement Team. These groups continually look for ways to improve Edison Environmental Science Academy. In addition, parents can also become:

  • Guest readers.
  • Tutors.
  • Playground volunteers.
  • Classroom helpers.
  • Contributors of "wish list" classroom supplies.

For more information on how you can make Edison Environmental Science Academy stay strong through parent involvement, contact Deborah Yarbrough with Kalamazoo Communities In Schools (KCIS) at 269.337.0550 x211.

Parent Group
During the 2007-08 school year, a group of dedicated individuals under the leadership of Dr. Rice, Superintendent of Kalamazoo Public Schools, developed the Strategic Planning Expectations. These expectations can serve as a road map for our students' future success.

The expectations are broken into five different categories: student, community, educators, parents, and support staff. They are then divided by grade-level. In August 2008, all parents were mailed a copy of the expectations specific to your child. If you did not receive a copy, please stop by our office or view the expectations here.

During the 2008-09 school year our Parent Group will develop a Parent Handbook that aligns with the Strategic Planning Expectations. If you would like input, please attend one or more of the parent meetings during the school year.
