Parent Involvement

Parents of SAFE scholars are an important part of their child’s education. Each parent is asked to sign a Parent Participation Pledge. This pledge details the school’s expectations of parents. SAFE expects all parents to commit to doing whatever it takes to help their child(ren) succeed.
