Input for Parent Involvement

As a part of our effort to continue our school-parent-community involvement, we need your input as to how to best put to use our Parent Involvement Allocation.  Last year, we were able to utilize a Parent Resource Coordinator who could organize parent trainings and workshops.  Some workshops could include how to assist students with homework, understanding the standards students are required to learn, and helping parents to understand our new math systems.  Other expenditures could be purchasing parent resource kits or materials for parents to check out and use at home.  

We want to offer what will best serve our students and parents, so we would like for you to provide input and make suggestions as to what you think would be beneficial for both.  Please contact Denise Callaway, dcallaway@elbert.k12.ga.us for comments. Thank you for your continued support in your child's education.
