Parent Involvement




My name is Cindy Smith and I am the Title 1 Parent Coordinator for the Pelham City School system. My job is to be the liaison between school and parents in our system.  

Parent involvement in their child’s education is has proven to be one of the most important factors in the success of child at school. 

One of the ways I work with parents is to provide monthly parent workshops that help increase the capacity for parents to be involved in their child’s education. 

I also work with the school staff to relate the feelings and requests of parents as well as, through staff development workshops, encourage the partnership relationship between parents and teachers/administrators. 

A monthly
newsletter is sent out at each school to help inform families of the upcoming parent involvement activities at our schools as well as informational tips and academic resources.

The Pelham City School System also maintains a Parent Involvement Resource Center, which is where my office is located.  For more information about the PIRC, just click on the link.
The PCS Title 1 Program encourages the input and involvement of parents in many ways but one specific way is through their involvement on the Parent Involvement Councils at each school. 

      We meet at least 4 times a year and review & revise school policies as well as compacts, review the summary of parent surveys to plan workshops and activities for the next year, and help assist me in complying with state and federal guidelines. All parents, grandparents, guardians or community members are invited and welcome to be a part of these councils.

     If I can be of any further assistance to you I am in the Resource Center when it is open or can be contacted by phone at:  (229) 294-8170 ext. 214
or (229) 294-6063 (PCMS-Wed & Fri afternoons)
or (229) 221-2336 on my cell phone. 


I can also be reached via email at the following address:   csmith@pelham-city.k12.ga.us
