Parent and Family Engagement Coordinator

Jayne BlackWelcome to Woodstation!

My name is Jayne Black and I am the WES Title l Parent and Family Engagement Coordinator. My primary role is to support parents and provide information on how you can be fully engaged in your child's education. I encourage you to visit our Family Resource Center (Room 120) to learn about the many ways you can be involved and how to fully participate in your child's education. In the Family Resource Center, we have community, parenting, and educational resources available for you to take home to help your family succeed both in and out of the classroom. I'm committed to making sure all parents have the resources necessary to feel confident communicating with teachers and staff at school. I'm looking forward to an exciting and successful year!

Family and School Team (FAST)

We are excited about the student academic growth we are seeing here at school. We know you are working at home with your students and helping them work on their grade level goals. Please be sure to attend your Family and School Team (FAST) conference with your child's teacher. These meetings will be held during the week of November 4-8. Teachers will be reviewing your student's assessment scores with you and giving you tips on how you can support learning at home. This is a great opportunity to ask questions and have one-on-one time with your child's teacher. If you haven't already scheduled your meeting, please contact the teacher through email or agenda or you may also call the school at (706) 935-6700

We Want to Keep You In the Know!
We want parents to be an active part in decision making at WES. We want you to know that as a parent of a child attending a Title l school, you have the right to request any meetings you feel are necessary at any time by contacting Jayne Black, Family Engagement Coordinator at jblack.wes@catoosa.k12.ga.us or (706) 935-6700. We are committed to providing opportunities for parents to attend regular meetings to formulate suggestions, share experiences, and participate in decisions related to the education of your child. To learn more about our Title l Parent and Family Engagement Program, check out our school policy on the WES website or in the Family Resource Center. We would love to hear your feedback and suggestions.

We Want Your Input!
If you have any input or suggestions for our Family Engagement Program or our Title l Budget, please be sure to let us know your suggestions! This year we are spending our Title l funds on salaries for our Academic Coach and Family Engagement Coordinator. Part of the budget also goes toward supplies and materials for family engagement workshops. Title l budget information can be found on the Title l page of our school website. For more information about how we spend our Title l funds, please review our Annual Meeting and PAC presentations and meeting minutes on the school website and fill out an Input Card with your suggestions. We want to hear from you!

Family Resource Center (Room 120)
Our Family Resource Center (Room 120) lending library has parenting resources available for check-out. These include parenting books, brochures on academic topics, and books and activities for children. You are welcome to borrow these resources to use at home and return them when you're finished. The Family Resource Center is also a place for volunteers to gather and connect with each other. We'd love for you to stop by!

Annual Meeting Information Sheets, CCPS Parent and Family Engagement Policy, WES Parent and Family Engagement Policy, Input Cards, and testing information, are always available in our Family Resource Center (Room 120). Our Family Resource Center is open during school hours. I am also available to answer questions and provide information Monday - Friday from 7:30-3:30 p.m. Thank you for being engaged in your child's education!
