FAYETTE COUNTY, WV (WOAY) – Fayette County Schools says parent involvement is at an all-time high, thanks to virtual learning
Since handing out devices earlier this week and yesterday‘s first day of classes, the school system has received an unexpected jump in calls from parents with questions about their child’s education. School officials are excited to see an increase in parent involvement and want parents to know they are heard.
“They’ve reached out to us by phone, they’ve contacted us by email– both here at the board office as well as their teachers in their schools,” said assistant superintendent Anna Kincaid-Cline. “It’s given us such a wonderful avenue to communicate things. As they share with us what their struggles are, we’ve been able to adjust to make changes.”
Kincaid-Cline says parent involvement can dramatically benefit a child’s education. Schools hope this will continue past the pandemic.
