When Danny Bell became superintendent of Lincoln Parish schools, he had one goal at heart--strengthen our public schools while accelerating student academics at all grade and ability levels. Research has shown that the most successful schools not only have solid community support, but active interest and participation from its members, therefore, his vision included the implementation of a critically important component—effective community partnerships. Toward this effort, Lincoln ACHIEVE was launched. And from its beginning in August of 2006, this new initiative has worked to promote “Accelerating Children Higher In Educational Values Everywhere.” Coordinated within the parish’s fourteen public schools, ACHIEVE provides a mechanism for strategies and resources to be customized in order to meet the unique needs of a school’s student body while positively impacting academic achievement.

Through the Family Resource Center families can receive information, instructional materials, personal assistance, training and support in order to help themselves and their children.
