PARENT & FAMILY ENGAGEMENT "ON THE ROAD"
The Decatur County School System’s Family Engagement (Literacy) Bus was designed to take its” Family Engagement on the Road” activities to a new level. Mobile training, such as this, would allow a greater number of parents & families to receive information needed to support their children’s education, thereby increasing student success.
Mobile training would also reduce potential barriers that may prevent parents & families from being more engaged in their students’ education, such as transportation and childcare. When administrators, teachers, and staff reach out to parents & families beyond the walls of the school building and meet them in their own neighborhoods & community, relationship building, trust, and positive rapport are established. When meaningful communication occurs between home and school, supportive relationships may develop. Again, this leads to increased student success as we seek to educate the whole child.
The Decatur County School System’s Literacy Bus will go out into the community to provide parents & families’ information, training, and resources needed to work with their children to improve their children’s achievement. Such topics will include literacy awareness, technology use, understanding State and local academic assessments, how to monitor a child’s progress and how to work with educators to improve the achievement of their children.
Opportunities for families to learn more about the services & resources businesses and organizations provide presents itself when Family Engagement information is accessible beyond the walls of the school building.
