School leaders show they care with new program

August 13, 2007

Albany--  A new program to be implemented in Dougherty County schools will get more parents involved with their child's education.

Beginning in October, Dougherty County Schools will implement the I Care Program. It combines parental and community involvement along with character development.

Each month, a character building activity is sent home to parents. The activity revolves around a character trait like Self-Confidence and that same trait is implemented at home, at school and in the community.

"Parents return what we call a feedback form, sharing positive things that they're doing with their children at home," said Herbert Solomon.

Herbert Solomon says the program has been proven to increase achievement in school systems. It's already been implemented in the Sumter County School system. It will cost about $295,000 and will be paid for using Title I and V funds. 

It's already been in place at Monroe High School over the past year.  School leaders will be able to look at statistical data monthly via the internet.
