About this site

This web site was initially created by me, Jay Cohen as a volunteer. I have no financial relationship with the hosting company, wikispaces.com. I simply started this site and one for my own Home and School Association when I heard that wikispaces.com offers a free web site called a wiki that can easily be edited and maintained by many people. If you have any questions about how to help with this site or create a site for your own Home and School Association, please feel free to email me at jcohen@delawarevalley.org. Also, if you have any interest in helping and/or contributing to this site, please go ahead. That is what it is for.

If adding to, or editing, this page, please use posting formats.. The discussion tab of this page is not generally used or checked. If you have an issue for discussion, please see the links under "Discussion" to the left of this page.

In addition to my volunteer activites for several parent organizations including the Philadelphia Home and School Council, I have a contract with Communities In Schools Philadelphia to provide FamilyNet services for the School District of Philadelphia. As part of my contract I perform the following services:
  • I show parents and caregivers how to use FamilyNet (an online system where parents can see their child's grades, test scores, and more)
  • I provide parents with information about computers and the Internet as well as connect them with good deals when I see them
  • I work with organizations interested in giving free computers to families in the District in order to evaluate their effect on educational achievement of students
  • I work with organizations interested in donating computers to families
