Most parents want to get involved in their kids' education. Beach High School's trying to make it easier. They already have several parent organizations, but now they're starting a parent advisory board. They'll meet every month to talk about new ideas for the school and act as a link between the school and the families.
"For high school, it's extremely important because for some reason we think the kids don't need the parents once they get to high school, but this is the most critical time of their lives where they're making adult decisions, adult choices," said Gertrude Robinson, the school's assistant principal.
Last night they held an information session. The board officially goes to work in the next couple months.
