Family Engagement (Title I Information)
Parkwood's Family Engagement Liaison, Tracey Callahan, is available to assist you in any way. Please call or email her if you need assistance, have questions, or want information on ways to help your child.
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.

Parkwood Elementary believes that Family Engagement means the participation of parents in regular, two-way, and meaningful communication involving student academic learning and other school activities.
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 –
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.
