10th Parents Step Ahead “Parent of the Year” Awards 

You are cordially invited  to attend the 10th Parents Step Ahead “Parent of the Year” Awards. Since 2006, Parents Step Ahead has honored parents from different school districts throughout North Texas with a December celebration. During the event, parents are rewarded for their contributions to their children’s education with a dinner and a special awards ceremony.

Parents Step Ahead (PSA) was established to remedy the growing lack of awareness plaguing parents, especially underserved parents, which has put their children at a significant disadvantage in school and in life. Parental involvement is an essential component for children’s success of and for what is needed to close the achievement gap that is so prevalent in low-income students. PSA, a 501-C3 nonprofit organization established in 2006, has developed and applied a proven model of parental engagement.

Our nation´s educational challenges are so great and seemingly insurmountable that we learn daily about new programs and approaches.  Foundations big and small, the private sectors, government at all levels and other organizations expend resources and energy to address these vexing issues with the expectation that they will reap dividends, improving outcomes and increasing educational opportunities.

These initiatives are directed at children, and many focus on improving programs that educate our youth directly.  Teachers and schools come to mind when we think of educators.  But have we forgotten the “smallest school” where children learn the most and people teach the most? The family and parents!

Countless studies have proved that the more parents involve themselves in their children’s life and education, the greater the likelihood their children will succeed. Parents, however, often lack information about the best ways to be involved.

"We believe that parents are the foundation of their children’s future and to a great extent the key to their success in life." PSA
