Tips for Families

Be A VOLUNTEER - We welcome and encourage family involvement. There are many ways for families to give of their time and talents. Contact our Family Engagement Liaison for more information.

All volunteers working with students are required to have a background check on file with the Houston County School District and receive volunteer training at our school. Background checks are good for five years and are good at any school in the county. If you aren’t sure of your clearance status, our Family Engagement Coordinator will be happy to check for you. Background Check Applications are available in the front office.

Family Resource Center

Families are welcome to visit our Parent Resource Center in the front office of the school.  You will find resources, pamphlets, and information to stay informed.  The Resource Center is open during school hours from 8:30am - 3:30pm Monday-Friday.

More About Title I

Parkwood Elementary is a Title I School. We are eligible for Title I funding based on our percentage of students eligible for free and reduced lunch. This means we receive additional federal funds for the purpose of improving teaching and learning for students. All students in our school benefit from these funds. Title I requires that these funds be used for programs that will improve student achievement and include ways to help families help their children to succeed (family engagement). All Title I schools must include stakeholder (family, teacher, student) input in the development of a written Family Engagement policy.

Parkwood Elementary hosts activities throughout the year to build strong family engagement which supports a partnership among the school, families and the community to improve student academic achievement. We believe that family engagement is the participation of families in all areas of their children’s education and development, recognizing that families are the primary influence in their children’s lives. Check the school's social media pages, the school sign, newsletters and call-outs for the most current information on school events.

Parkwood Elementary and our school district have adopted the National Network of Partnership Schools (NNPS) for Family-School Partnerships as the school’s model in engaging parents, students, and the community. These standards are –

1. Parenting
2. Communicating
3.  Volunteering
4.  Learning at Home
5.  Decision Making
6.  Collaborating with Community

Parkwood Elementary invites all parents to share ideas and ways to involve other parents to build partnerships with school, families, and the community.  parents can also submit their ideas or suggestions during all activities and meetings as well as through our parent surveys and website.
