PARKSIDE PROMISE COUNCIL!
Promise Councils are committed to supporting students based on three key areas identified by local teachers and staff:
- Providing more adult mentors for students
- Meeting the physical needs of students when they stand in the way of academic achievement
- Increasing opportunities for family engagement
