Parent and Family Engagement Mission Statement

Atlantic Community High School’s mission is to strengthen parent and school partnership, solidify student/teacher relationships, and to encourage parents to increase involvement in their child’s education in school and at home.

Annual Title I Meeting

Each year, families are invited to attend this meeting at the beginning of the school year to learn more about our schoolwide Title I Program and the requirements of Title I. Our meeting will was held on August 28th. Information about our Title I programs ae available through our SAC meetings or by contacting the school at 561-243-1500.


Parent and Family Engagement Trainings

Based on the family survey and input from all stakeholders, we will provide the following activities and trainings to assist families in understanding the road map to success to support their child(ren)’s academic achievement.

  • Academic Nights- learn specific strategies to help their students at home.
  • AVID Patent Night- orientate parents to the culture of the school through tutorials, technology, and college ready information.
  • Assessment Nights- parents will about the graduation requirements and the assessment demands.


Shared Decision Making

Stakeholders and families will be involved in the development of the plan by providing input at SAC & parent input meetings throughout the year. Information about programs, schoolwide academic progress and incentives are discussed and shared with all. We hope you can join us in helping our school make the best possible decisions for the students we serve.


Title I information will be shared via the Title I Annual Meeting, faculty meetings, and SAC meetings. Parents will receive invites, callouts, and text messages. The school marquee and “Eagles of Excellence” newsletter will also display information. Students’ academic and behavior expectations are communicated to families via parent teacher conferences, parent nights for EOC and FSA and parent training.   Progress is shared via SIS, conferences, Open House/Curriculum Nigh, progress reports, and report cards.

Accessibility for All Families

Atlantic’s Community Language Facilitators (CLFs) work with students, families and staff to facilitate and enhance communication and involvement. We will use district resources to provide interpreters as needed. Atlantic HS supports and enhances communication through services provided by the ELL coordinator, CLFs, bilingual administrators and bilingual guidance counselors.  The school is also accessible through handicapped parking and ramps, and it is in compliance with ADA.



Families are encouraged to volunteer at our school to help stents and teachers be successful. For more information please the school at 561-243-1500.
