Parents from across the Cobb County and Marietta school districts came together on Saturday, Feb. 9 to focus on the important role they play in their childrens’ education.   The gathering of nearly 150 parents for the 1st annual Parent Involvement Summit at Campbell Middle School was held to provide parents the tools and strategies to become more actively involved in their child’s academic achievement.

Led by both school districts, the Georgia PTA, and the Center for Family Resources, parents heard from experts on topics such as post secondary education options, navigating the school system, and understanding the available resources.
