BLOUNT COUNTY PARENT INVOLVEMENT PROGRAM
The most overwhelming key to a child's success is the positive involvement of parents.
The Mission of the Blount County Parental Involvement Program is to provide information, support, resources and training for parents of students enrolled in the Blount County School System.

ATTENTION Parents of children who will begin Kindergarten in the Fall of 2013:

TOGETHER We can achieve greater results, break down barriers, promote positive reinforcement, discover the perfect solution, make an impact in our community, educate one another, and make a difference. Through teamwork, all things are possible.
The Blount County Parent Involvement Program is based at the Blount County Resource Center. The Program is designed to keep parents informed regarding local school policies, State and Federal regulations, and ideas and techniques to help your child with his/her education. Training sessions are scheduled each school year specifically for parents. These include, but are not limited to, Annual Federal Programs Information Meeting, Kid Crafters Training for parents and their preschool age children 3-5 years old, and an Open House at the Blount County Resource Center to familiarize parents with what is available. Each school that receives Title I funds must provide opportunities for parents to be involved in their child's education and opportunities for parents to do volunteer work in or for the school.
Monthly Home and School Connections Newsletters are sent home with all students K - 6th grade. If you would like to have the newsletter emailed to you, simply email Ms. Shelli Simmons at email@example.com. Please put "Home & School Newsletter" in the subject line.
