F.A.S.T. NJEA’s Families and Schools Together Work for Children (FAST) program works to encourage families to be involved in their children’s education, to enhance their academic progress, and to feel welcome in public schools.
F.A.S.T. Program Activities
Partnerships, discussions, and programs focusing on family involvement.
Support for legislation that would allow parents to take time away from work, without loss of pay, to address children’s needs at school.
Family involvement workshops through which parents and caregivers learn more about helping children succeed in school. These events include activities for children so that families can attend them together.
Visits by school employees to participating places of worship and other community meeting places to invite and encourage parents and caregivers to participate in teacher conferences and school activities.
FAST is a jointly sponsored effort of the New Jersey Education Association, its local affiliates, the Statewide Parents Advocacy Network, and Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc, with additional program support from the NAACP Statewide Education Committee.
On May 3rd, 2019 the HCEA had their 5th annual Friends of Education Gala at Razberry’s in Frenchtown. Once again it was a great night and we presented three awards to well deserving “friends of education”.
