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

Sunnyside Unified School District is proud to introduce SUSD TogetherNet


A place where Students, Parents and Community members can come together to share information regarding responsible technology use and learn how to make the most of access to online resources.

As we build out the content of the TogetherNet Site over the next few months,it will grow to include a library of articles, links and resources to help parents learn how to explore the web with their student and have the critical conversations necessary to teach and model critical digital literacy skills. 

The TogetherNet Site is also designed to be a forum for all parents and community members to share ideas, concerns, and resources back with our educational leaderships in the district to help to inform our decisions at the school level to make sure that we’re getting the most out of our access to online information.

Join the conversation by clicking on the link below.  The Net is better when we learn together!
