Parent Engagement

Success in school starts at home. Sunnyside USD recognizes the importance of effective partnerships between the school and families and strives to welcome, inform and engage parents with the understanding that parental engagement is critical to students’ academic achievement.
Research continues to support that parental expectations have the greatest impact on student achievement. Therefore regardless of family income or background, students with involved parents are more likely to:

  • Earn higher grades and test scores, and enroll in higher-level programs
  • Be promoted, pass their classes, and earn credits
  • Attend school regularly
  • Have better social skills, show improved behavior, and adapt well to school
  • Graduate and go on to postsecondary education

Parent Communication  Sunnyside USD is committed to enhancing and maintaining effective communication with families via phone, email and text message. In order to ensure successful communication, we must have accurate contact information on file for your child. This will ensure you receive emergency notifications and other important messages from the District, your child's school and teacher(s). Contact the front office at your child's school to report any changes. Please click here for a list of schools.



PowerSchool Parent Portal  Parents and Legal Guardians may request a PowerSchool Parent Portal account to access their child’s attendance, homework and grades online 24/7. Contact your school's PIA for more information.
