Parent Guides Assist Families in Carroll County Public Schools

Release Date: 5/28/2009 3:07:43 PM

On Monday, May 11, 2009, at West Middle School, a group of volunteers was introduced to Carroll County Public Schools administrators and community members. They are called Parent Guides. 
 
Parent Guides are parents who educate, encourage, and empower other parents who have children in Carroll County Public Schools. The Parent Guide assists parents with gaining acceptance and respect in the school community. They foster positive relationships between home and school and help parents understand and negotiate the school system’s policies and procedures. The Parent Guide builds a collaborative climate where parents feel comfortable sharing their concerns.
 
Listed are the volunteers who serve as Regional Parent Guides:

The Parent Guide program is a result of the Minority Family Forums. To contact a Parent Guide in your region, please call your child’s school for the information. Parent Guides are still needed in the Century, Liberty, and Manchester Valley regions.
