Parental Engagement is the participation of parents in regular, two-way, and meaningful communication involving student academic learning and other school activities. The purpose is to ensure that parents play an integral role in their child’s learning and are active in their child’s education at school.
OPPORTUNITIES FOR PARENTAL ENGAGEMENT
Some opportunities for parental engagement include:
Each school has a parent liaison who coordinates parent activities. Mrs. Rebecca Murray and Ms. Jada Ingram are our parent liaison coordinators. For more information regarding activities at Carver Road Middle, please call our school at (770) 229-3739. If you have any comments or suggestions, always feel free to contact our parent liaisons. Your liaisons will take your feedback to the leadership team of the school and will provide helpful tips to school staff.
Every year, students, parents and school staff sign a compact or agreement. This compact outlines how parents, the entire school staff, and students will share the responsibility for improved student academic achievement and the means by which the school and parents will build and develop a partnership to help children achieve the State’s high standards. This compact is given out at the beginning of each school year.
At the beginning and end of the school year, schools send out a parent questionnaire. The results of this survey are used to review the effectiveness of parent activities. Feedback from these surveys is very important. The school parental involvement policy and school activities are developed from feedback parents give on these surveys.
PARENTAL INVOLVEMENT POLICY
The purpose of the school parental involvement policy is to ensure that strong strategies are in place to: 1) build the capacity to involve parents in an effective partnership with the school; 2) share and support high student academic achievement. The school and parents must jointly develop and agree on the policy. It is revised every year to meet the changing needs of parents. Finally, the policy is distributed to parents.
The school district also has a school parental involvement policy. It is also revised every year. A copy of this document is distributed to parents as well. You may view the policy in PDF form by clicking the link on this page.
