Parent Collaboration Group of West Bloomfield
The purpose of the Parent Collaboration Group of West Bloomfield is to bring together parents of the district with the Superintendent, representatives from each school’s PTO boards, the community, police, local organizations, and school board to share information and work toward positive initiatives for our school district and community.
In order to bring these groups together to discuss topics important to our community, the Parent Collaboration Group of West Bloomfield will be hosting four meetings during the 2019-20 school year.

But do we really know HOW to collaborate? The District Learning Design Team is excited to take our parents through a number of activities to build a deeper understanding of collaboration and the skills needed to do it well. Parents will actively participate in the activities and will experience life as a Collaborator in the West Bloomfield School District.

How does the application process work? What should my child be doing to prepare for college? What is the FAFSA, EFC, NPC, & CSS? How do I find scholarships? How can West Bloomfield High School help me? It is not too soon to start thinking about college as scholarships and opportunities are out there for all ages.
