Meet Your Parent Liaison, Melanie Holt

Hello, Bronco Family! Welcome to our Parent and Family Resource Site. I am here to serve as a link between school and home and to promote and strengthen the role parents play in their children's education. I am an educator, and a proud Bronco Mom! My ultimate goal as Parent Liaison is to help parents understand the educational system so they can become better advocates for their children. If you have any questions, concerns or suggestions, please reach out to me at holt.melanie@mail.fcboe.org.

E3 Parent Advisory Council

The E3 Parent Advisory Councils (E3PAC) ensures effective engagement of all parents. We work to support the partnership between our entire school community (school administration and staff, Parent Teacher Organization and local businesses). We plan, review and implement Title I programs and work on the joint development of the school Family Engagement policy and the School-Family compact. In addition, we develop a spending plan in consultation with Title I staff recommending how the school’s minimum 1% parent involvement allocation can be best utilized to support the needs of all parents.
