Parent and Family Engagement
The Pickens County School District fosters collaboration with all community stakeholders to support student learning. School board meetings are open sessions and public attendees are welcome to participate in dialogue with board members regarding policies and procedures that directly affect student learning. Additionally, schools hold parent open houses, individual parent conferences, parent teacher organization meetings, Continuous Improvement Team (CIP) meetings, Book Nights, Grandparents Day, Arts Week Open House, Fall Festivals, Spring Musicals and Booster meetings to further engage community stakeholders in dialogue related to student achievement. Moreover, numerous community members serve as members of district and school committees to provide feedback about diverse curriculum and student learning needs.
The District has successfully built strong relationships with community stakeholders. Representatives of various community and civic organizations such as 4-H, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Arts and Humanities Council, etc. serve as judges for school activities such as Spelling Bees, Band Festivals and Chorus Festival. Numerous community groups and organizations supply resources to support student achievement, attendance recognitions and scholarships. Other entities collaborate with individual schools and the District to conduct fundraisers, develop public relations brochures, videos, purchase achievement recognition ribbons, etc. that support student learning.
