Parent & Family Engagement Specialist

Welcome Families

The Parent and Family Engagement Program is crucial to each child throughout his or her prekindergarten through twelfth-grade experience. Bulloch County Schools encourages parents and guardians to remain actively involved.

When you are actively engaged in your child's education and well-informed about how to achieve success, it positively affects your child's achievement.

Our school's Parent & Family Engagement Specialist helps to bridge the gap between home and school by assisting parents in understanding ways they can help their children with academics.
