DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) -

In an effort to keep parents involved and engaged, the Dougherty County School System is hosting a roundtable asking for parent input.

Tuesday, the school system is holding two open discussions for parents to weigh in on their current family and community engagement plan.

They are seeking input on how the district can improve overall, especially in the way they stay engaged with parents and families.

The current plan contains the notification system, events held throughout the year, and how parents are involved throughout the school year. 

DCSS Spokesperson J.D. Sumner said the parents are the advocates and stakeholders for the system.  

And he wants them to be involved in all aspects of the process, so they all ultimately benefit from it. 

"That's the whole point of community engagement and the vision of the Dougherty County School System, keep them involved, keep them a part of the process, and keep them engaged so that their students ultimately benefit," said Sumner.

The discussion will be held at Walter Judge Academy in the cafeteria Tuesday at 9 a.m. 

Another session will be held at 5:30 p.m.
