Aug. 8, 2019

Proud to be a National PTA School of Excellence

Curlew Creek Elementary, Seminole Middle, Dunedin High and Richard O. Jacobson Technical High School were named 2019-2021 National PTA Schools of Excellence for building strong family-school partnerships that enrich educational experiences and the overall well-being of students.


“When families and schools work together, students do better in school and schools improve,” said Leslie Boggs, president of National PTA.

National PTA’s School of Excellence program supports and celebrates schools and PTAs that make a year-long commitment to improving family-school partnerships. Throughout the year, the schools and PTAs collect feedback from their school communities and create and implement plans to make a difference for every child. Through the School of Excellence program, PTAs and families become key partners in decision-making and school improvement efforts.
