School system asks for more parental involvement

Posted: Updated:

Almost 200 parents from the Dougherty County School System had a conversation with community leaders at the Isabella Complex Center.

The Dougherty County School System, Phoebe Putney Hospital and Faith Based Initiative and other groups came together for the second conversation with parents.

The goal was to promote the importance of parental involvement at school. Breakfast was served to all parents who attended.

"Research shows 85% of kids finish high school when they're parents are involved." said DCSS Superintendent Dr. Joshua Murfree.

Board members are proposing a parent seminar every nine weeks of the school year.
