On Thursday, September 22, 2011, thousands of fathers, foster fathers, grandfathers, uncles, brothers, godfathers, cousins, and other significant male caregivers and mentors will walk or drive their children to school to show their support of their children's education. Visit www.famefathers.org/2011/09-22-11%20FW.htm. Downloadable fliers and postcards are available on the website. For questions or more information, contact Vera at 330.873.9747 or firstname.lastname@example.org. This Fathers Walk is coordinated by Charisma Community Connections and supported by Akron Public Schools, Summit County Fatherhood Initiative, Summit County Council, Summit County PTA Council and Interdenominational Ministerial Alliance (IMA). The joint mission of Fame Fathers and the National Fatherhood Initiative is to improve the well-being of children by increasing the proportion of children growing up with involved, responsible and committed fathers.

SPARK Ohio offers direct support to families with three- and four-year-olds so they can be their children's first and best teachers. This free program prepares children for kindergarten at Leggett, Mason, McEbright and Robinson Community Learning Centers, with David Hill CLC being added for the 2011-12 school year. A Parent Partner visits the family, does screening with the child, and provides parents with activity packets that include books and other learning materials that they can use with their three- and four-year-olds. This year, 50 families with four-year-olds participated to get their children ready for kindergarten. On August 11, 2011, recognition of the 2011 class was held at Leggett Community Learning Center for all APS SPARK programs.
In an announcement delivered on June 9, 2011, Superintendent David W. James delivered the news that Akron Public Schools has teamed with The University of Virginia to increase academic performance.
Parents, employees, alumni, volunteers and community leaders strive to be charismatic adults in the lives of our students. At Akron Public Schools, our success is YOU! We can all make a difference in the life of a child!
