Parent Advocates for Argyle Schools

There's a new web site in Argyle.   It's called Parent Advocates for Argyle Schools.   It's run by parents, for parents.   It's mission is to inform.

The site offers resources [many great sites to keep your kids learning this summer!], tips, advice, and pertinent links to help parents navigate through the Argyle ISD educational system [though the majority of the site's content is applicable to any school district or system!].   As renaissance philosopher Sir Francis Bacon said, Knowledge is power .   The site is run by two educators: a principal, and a former middle/high school teacher.   They value and welcome community input  in making this site a valuable resource for our schools, so stop by, visit, pose a question, or leave a comment!

If you have a specific question, need help or an advocate, or simply need to voice a concern   or get advice in a safe environment, visit the  Ask An Educator Page and post your question.
