Care to the Core Day Is Right Around The Corner

Check out all these events!

On Monday, April 23, every Dearborn public school will highlight the great ways their school is working to create a safe school environment during the first-ever “Care to the Core Day.” Each school will participate in an activity or program that demonstrates programs that are centered on helping students resolve conflicts, understanding the impact of their behaviors, and creating a safer school environment.

Parents, community members, city officials and others are invited to visit a Dearborn public school on April 23 to see and experience first-hand the types of activities that Dearborn schools are doing to promote a positive environment that nurtures student success.

MPSERS Health Refund - Former Employee Information

School districts have not received the funding or directions regarding how the 3% MPSERS Health reimbursement will be refunded, so unfortunately we have limited information at this time. The purpose of this form is to ensure we are able to reach you when refunds are ready to be distributed. Therefore, we definitely need your current contact information and we are asking all former employees to complete the form accessible here

For additional information, a link to the Office of Retirement Services (ORS) is also available below. As additional information becomes available it will be posted here as well.

Parent Pic

There was a time when parent participation was limited to “Homeroom Moms” helping with the class picnic or “Bake Sales” to raise funds for new playground equipment.

Parents still take part in those much needed and appreciated activities but today their role has expanded and is even more significant as a partner in helping to educate students.

Moms, dads, guardians, grandparents, and other family members are actively engaged in the overall success of a school. They sit on committees that develop the overall direction and educational plan for a school, take part in interviewing new staff members, lobby for or against legislation impacting schools, volunteer hundreds of hours at events, and provide the “at home” support that is critical for students to succeed in school.

The Parent section of our website is designed to provide parents with the resources they need to help their child be successful in the Dearborn Public Schools. Special programs, contact information, required forms, lunch menus, and much more can be found in this section.

The district is building a list of community resources and services for parents in Dearborn.  The list of resources is updated on the Cotter School website. Click here to view.
