The Parent Resource Parent Involvement Center was created by Franklin County Public Schools to be a source of support and information for parents and families, to offer parents encouragement and support, and to share ways to work as a team with the child's school so the child can be prepared for his or her future.
Workshops are provided on a variety of topics which may include Elementary School Success, Helping Your Child with Reading, Organizational and Study Skills, Understanding Special Education, and more.
A lending library is available with videos, books, and other materials regarding ADHD, autism, discipline, enriching your parenting skills, homework help, helping your child with reading, etc. (Please see "Lending Library Resources" in the Downloads section of this webpage.)

ADHD Support Group: 6:00 p.m. on 3/16, and 5/18.

There are many ways to be involved in your child’s education this school year. 1) Provide your child a nutritious breakfast and a good night’s sleep. Children learn more easily when they are well-fed and well-rested. 2) Talk with your children daily about their homework and school activities. It will contribute to their school success. 3) Read to and with your children regardless of their ages. It will improve their reading and vocabulary skills. 4) Contact your child’s teacher about how to get involved and how to support your child’s individual progress. Regular communication helps teachers and parents work as a team. 5) Attend parent/teacher conferences, parent involvement meetings and workshops, and become a part of your school’s parent/teacher organization. Your participation in school activities sends your children the message that you value their education.
