Family & Community Involvement Award

The Family and Community Involvement Award is sponsored with the Florida PTA and State Farm Insurance and supported through business partnerships. School-level family and community involvement programs are evaluated on their:

  • impact on family involvement,
  • ability to be replicated,
  • relationship to the goals and objectives of the school,
  • participation of parents/families in the planning and implementation,
  • uniqueness and innovation,
  • impact on school improvement,
  • method of funding, and
  • partnerships.

The Florida PTA recognizes the winning programs at a luncheon during their summer leadership conference. Over 1000 PTA members honor the ten regional program winners and attend workshops featuring the exemplary programs. The booklet, SPARKPLUGS PDF) is produced annually with a summary of model family involvement programs from participating districts.
