Goal 2: Parent and Community Engagement

Through the renewing and development of partnerships with families, community businesses, county offices and higher learning institutions, the District has been able to offer additional learning opportunities to include the development of middle school electives, after-school programming, clubs, and athletic activities. In addition, as a result of working with newly developed partners, the District has implemented a recycling and composting program and constructed outdoor learning and maker spaces.

With tremendous support the District will allocate space for a parent resource room to support the growing volunteer program at Mesa Union School District. The District has also implemented new volunteer requirements to include finger printing and tuberculosis testing.
