PARTNERSHIPS THAT WORK BUTLER STUDENT EDUCATION ASSOCIATION, KAPPA DELTA PI SUPPORT the LAB SCHOOL IPS celebrates all of our partners who contribute to school and student success in a variety of ways. IPS/Butler University Laboratory School 60 values the partners that encourage parent involvement. Butler’s Student Education Association (SEA) and Kappa Delta Pi (KDP) are instrumental in the success of the Lab School’s monthly parent and educational meetings. SEA and KDP members volunteer their time to provide free onsite childcare during the meetings. Without childcare, the parent meetings would likely have poor attendance. “We all know the importance of parent participation, parent input, and parent leadership at the school,” said Jessica McNiel, Parent Involvement Educator at the Lab School. “Because of SEA and KDP, parents can be involved without having to worry about finding childcare or paying for it.” KDP has been a vital partner for the last five years, while SEA joined the partnership this year. The organizations alternate each month, and two-to-five volunteers provide childcare at the 10 meetings held each year. SEA has donated $1,000 through Scholastic to provide books to new teachers. “Each SEA member appreciates the relationship we have with the school,” explained Meghan Martin, SEA President. “We also love the chance to support some first-year teachers by donating to their classroom libraries.” Reprinted from the Indianapolis Public Schools website (myips.org), with permission from IPS.
