The Parent Resource Center, funded by Title I, Part A under the provisions of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, recognizes the importance of family involvement in education. Its primary objective is to increase parental involvement in children’s learning and empower parents to join the educational system.

This department collaborates with school personnel and families to develop partnerships that connect families, schools, and the community through parent training workshops, resource materials, and helpful information. The program supports home instruction and tutorials. Qualified staff is available to offer support strategies to parents on homework help, test-taking tips, discipline and coping skills.

The following resource materials are available in the Parent Resource Center and other information is available by request: Parenting Books, Pamphlets, Video/Audio Tapes, Technology Literacy, and Parent Workshops.


If you can do any of these things, you can be a volunteer … Tell stories to children? Make bulletin boards? Prepare learning materials? Help with special events? Share a craft or an interest?

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer or have any parent involvement ideas, please contact Melvin Bradshaw, Community Engagement Facilitator, at (757) 925-6752. Together, we can help all students achieve success.
