Get Involved for Parent Engagement Month

Involvement in a child’s education is important, especially for parents, grandparents, and guardians. That’s why during the month of November, Troup County School System (TCSS) is recognizing the month of November as Parent Engagement Month.

In November 2012, Governor Nathan Deal declared the month’s theme in a proclamation from the State of Georgia. To celebrate, TCSS will highlight the role parents, grandparents and guardians play in a student’s education. For example, a list of quick tips and various local success stories will be shared on the district’s website and Facebook page. Also, the Department of Education is hosting a parent video contest as a way to increase awareness of involvement in education.
