  • Each Parent Partnership community event is hosted by one of our seven high schools. All elementary and middle schools within each high school feeder pattern (schools that channel students into a high school) compete for a Most Participation trophy. The feeder pattern winners for the January 29th event hosted at North Marion High School were: Dr. N.H. Jones, Fort McCoy School, Horizon Academy at Marion Oaks, Lake Weir High, Legacy Elementary, , Saddlewood Elementary, and South Ocala Elementary. Congratulations to our trophy winners, and thank you to our participating families!

    We believe…

    • Family-school relationships should focus on student progress and success.
    • Families are equal partners in achieving educational goals for students.
    • Both in-school and out-of-school experiences influence students’ school performance.
    • Sharing information about child behavior across settings is valued.
    • Collaboration has a positive effect on student learning.
    • Families should be active partners in decision-making.
    • Problem-solving can be accomplished by working together.
    • Family-school relationships are cultivated and sustained over time.
    • All families want what is best for their children.
    • All families can support their child’s learning.


    Goal: Increase student achievement through building and cultivating strong family, community, and school partnerships.
